    Internet has Reached its Capacity

    Post by Miles24 on February 28th 2011, 9:54 pm

    After many years of new technolongy being added to its massive network, the Internet's capacity of 4 billion IP adresses has nearly been reached. Currently, a new system is being developed, but it is predicted that all remaining IP adresses will be used within the next few months. Google and other sites are already planning ahead, but it is up to new ISPs to change to the new system. Until this new system can be added, the world is currently frantically inputing quick fixes, which are somewhat being considered as a digital version of Duct Tape.

    I never really thought I'd live to see the day when the Internet would become full. At least I got what I wanted to in before it completely shuts down.

    Imagine if every country could get onto the Internet. That would be good, but we would've filled up by 2005.

    Yep, that's why they came out with ipv6. The only thing I am worried about is giant corporations using the current overload as an excuse to charge people for their usage instead of a flat monthly fee. The way I see it, companies like AT&T could help out a little and just spend a little of their billions to simply add to the major infrastructure of the internet. The internet is after all, simply a network of computers. If the pipeline becomes full, simply add more pipes and server capacity. The internet is only as limited as the world makes it.

    I reached the end of the internet once!

    I'm with Ashley on this one. I never thought I'd see the day the internet would reach it's capacity since I first logged on in '97. But this was going to happen sooner or later.
