China Virus Lockdown Proves US Internet is Better, Stronger and Faster Than Europe’s

The China Virus freak out is forcing a fundamental transformation of many of the world’s societies.

A billion-plus people who would be going to work and church, restaurants and bars – are forced by governments to stay home.

So everything tactile – has become digital.

Work has become telework.

Church congregations have become mass teleconferences.

I have friends who would normally go out as a gaggle on weekend evenings – staying in as a gaggle on weekend evenings.  Digitally connecting and drinking together – separately.

And of course we are streaming infini-bytes-of-data-worth of movies and TV shows – to while away the government freak out hours.

All of this is made possible – by Internet Service Providers (ISPs).  The Comcasts, AT&Ts, Verizons and Charters of the world.

Here in the US, ISPs have spent the last quarter-century spending more than a trillion dollars building our Internet infrastructure.

The China Virus $20 Trillion Question?

  • Can U.S. Internet Infrastructure Handle Increased Demand?
  • Is the Internet Resilient Enough to Withstand Coronavirus?
  • So We’re Working From Home. Can the Internet Handle It?
  • Can the Internet Handle the Strain of Everyone Working from Home? Or Will It Buckle Under Pressure?
