Comcast Continues to Grow Bandwidth at Moore's Law Rates
As crazy as it seems, U.S. Internet service provider Comcast, now the biggest supplier in that market, has doubled the capacity of its network every 18 months.
In other words, Comcast has increased capacity precisely at the rate one would expect if access bandwidth operated according to Moore’s Law.
U.S. telcos have generally not been able to increase speed at such rates. That, in large part, might account for Comcast’s leadership of the Internet access market.
That said, across the whole market, access bandwidth has grown at rates very close to what one would expect if Internet access were governed by Moore’s Law.
