Akamai: State of the Internet Report [Comment: It's not faster than last year, because, like roads, it is not rationed or priced properly]

Tim Lee @ Ars: Why bandwidth caps could be a threat to competition: "Since the first dot-com boom, unmetered Internet access has been the industry standard. But recently, usage-based billing has been staging a comeback. Comcast instituted a bandwidth cap in 2008, and some other wired ISPs, including AT&T, have followed suit. In 2010, three of the four national wireless carriers—Sprint is the only holdout—switched from unlimited data plans to plans featuring bandwidth caps."

Tom Vanderbilt @ The Wilson Quarterly: The Call of the Future : "Today we worry about the social effects of the Internet. A century ago, it was the telephone that threatened to reinvent society." ["He is currently at work on You May Also Like, a book about the mysteries of human preferences."]

David Willetts @ The Guardian: The UK government is promising: Open, free access to academic research [Woot!]
