Broadband's Intensity Hits Business and Homes

Like a freight train going 90 miles an hour, broadband access is going to revolutionize the amount of content, as well as the way electronic files, video and other technologies are delivered to our businesses and homes. This and other observations about delivery speeds were delivered at an address by Broadcast.com Chairman and Founder Mark Cuban at the eTV conference in New York City.

Among other predictions, Cuban said that there would be one source in the home that would serve as a digital entertainment center-with a computer-at a cost below $2,000. This and other enhancements will be available due to inexpensive broadband circuits.

Content is king, and the challenge that lies before today's marketplace is the business model, distribution and managing a much greater amount of content.
