US government fears the Apple iPad
“With the iPad pointing to even greater demand for mobile broadband on the horizon we must ensure that network congestion doesn’t choke off a service that consumers clearly find so appealing…”
Mr. Bellaria refers to the network issues that occurred when AOL introduced unlimited internet access in the US in 1996, describing how users could not connect for months and how the few successful connections were too fragile, because of the numerous users attempting to connect.
And what do you think about that? Is the Apple iPad capable of bringing the network down?
