How Video is Changing the Internet

  • Changing TV from the status quo to personalized streaming will increase the load on ISP networks by 25 – 40 times.
  • The most likely path is a massive increase in CDN deployments
  • This will increase concentration of traffic in a small number of hands
  • The reconfiguration of the Internet that’s currently underway is unprecedented.
