It’s no secret that signs of a major network crash have been appearing for the last few years… Now the cracks are widening, pushing the situation to a boiling point. Just look at what’s happening as we speak…
* Just over a month ago, 32 million cell and Internet users were thrown into the dark, cut off from communication and business transactions. It was the second occurrence in a week
* Just a few days earlier, hundreds of thousands of iPhone users in Great Britain were left in the dark for the third time in a year.
* On October 2nd, nearly 1 million T-Mobile Sidekick users lost all of their personal data – business contacts, appointments, addresses – everything. Outraged customers filed class action lawsuits just two days later – adding to a long list.
* And on January 29, 2010, Google Nexus One users nationwide also lost all of their data after being left in the dark for more than eight hours. No explanation was ever given.
Beyond the outrage and the lawsuits, every crash costs America millions of dollars – with potential losses in the billions…
According to the executive director of Enisa, one of the top network and security agencies in the world, the next “digital 911” could equal the cost of the U.K. banking crisis.
And the telecoms have little choice but to spend. A lot. Every time they try and limit access or bandwith to their customers, they get hammered by the United States courts.
Comcast was sued by 4 towns in Michigan after it was caught delaying transfers of large media files and limiting the amount of data users can download.
AT&T customers filed a class-action lawsuit after experiencing slow connections when the company began “capping” its lines.
80,000 HughesNet customers in California filed a class action suit after being throttled below dial-up speeds for exceeding download caps.
RadioShack and AT&T Mobility were hit with a class action lawsuit after hitting unwitting customers with fees over $5,000 each for exceeding usage limits.
And the problem is only getting bigger.
Bottom line: The most sophisticated information technologies are just so much scrap if they can’t transmit information.
And whether the device is a smartphone, PC, laptop, cell phone or HDTV… whether the connection is wireless or cable… it must have one thing to carry all this data… Optical fiber.
One company that provides it is sitting in the catbird’s seat. Its newly developed fiber is a major breakthrough, and companies are scrambling to install it.
Which company I am talking about?
