nielsens-law-of-internet-bandwidth.jpg

You’ve heard of Moore’s Law, but have you heard of Nielsen’s? In 1998 Jakob Nielsen theorized that Internet bandwidth would see compound growth of 57x over ten years. Above is a graph showing Nielsen’s prediction alongside actual data points of bandwidth availability. He is remarkably on target.

I want to spend more time on this, including looking at some comparison data, but for the moment it’s worth just sharing the graph. More to come.
