Iplayer might break the internet

Nah, it'll never catch on, if you listen to some of the dinosaurs on here :rolleyes: ;).

This is definitely the way it's going to go and even if the network can't handle it yet, it's only a matter of time.
And it won't be long either.
I D/Led a 30 MB file today and it took about a minute and a half.

When I first started, it would have been nearer a day and a half :rotfl:

And several disconnections along the way.

Absolutely :(

I'm probably a bit passionate about this, but it's so blindingly obvious to me that it's the way it's going to go.
Forget the politics, but the government has just announced that BB will be available for all in a few years.

Good move, imo :smashin:, although I don't see how :confused:
Is this a case of Mr Murdoch getting some of his own treatment?

I predict it may well break the internet in certain areas, but the UK won't be one of them.

At the moment though, we're probably a weak link in the scheme of things.

I'm surprised no-one has picked up on this thread, as it has loads of potential for debate :smashin:

I'm currently at University and download 700mb a minute, yet Iplayer has been blocked due to the bandwidth it uses on the local network!
