Moore’s Law and IP Transit and Transport Pricing

By |2010-02-08T22:42:26-05:00February 8th, 2010|Categories: Blogs, Broadband, cloud computing, Ethernet, General, Global Telecommunications, IP transit, JS&A News, Telecom, Telecommunications, Virtualization, Wholesale Carrier, Wholesale Telecom|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

I was reminded that Moore’s law is actually playing itself out within the IP transit and IP transport space. We have all seen the trends of IP transit price declining.

I couldn’t make a decent profit if I sold transit below $100 per mbps - $4 seems absurd, but it’s not.

Jaymie Scotto & Associates invites our fellow telecom community to join together and contribute to the relief efforts for the Haitian earthquake victims and families. On January 12, a massive earthquake struck Haiti near the capital of Port-au-Prince. Officials fear that there are over 100,00 dead and many more are injured and homeless. With so many people in need of help, we believe that as a united community, our industry can make a difference.
