Efforts by broadband providers to push combined
modem/networking solutions to the consumer market are succeeding and
are fuelling a boom in home network adoption throughout Asia, Europe
and North America that will last for at least the next five years. [via TelecomTV]
This is interesting news. Is it just all the techies buying up this kit, or people that know techies that can help them set it up. I know a few people who have broadband but have no plans to go anywhere near wireless at home. They see it as far too complex to set up and mind boggling to fix if theirs a problem. Nonetheless, it’s good news, whether people have thought about a long term plan, to fit in with music streaming, HD TV etc, for their home network is another matter altogether.
