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. As a matter of fact, discussions on a variety of LinkedIn Groups cite prices as low as $4 per mbps. During my days as the Director of IP Services at Band-X, Inc. I couldn’t make a decent profit if I sold transit below $100 per mbps - $4 seems absurd, but it’s not.
