Web 3.0: premium television
1st generation Internet
1993-1999: Web 1.0. The first decade of the Internet was all about pioneering. We had dial-up internet, with slow and unreliable connections. We pioneered live streaming in 1994. The potential audience of the web was small. There was no business in content services. Video was a challenge. The first Global CDNs emerged, focussing on web delivery, using caching and DNS technologies. Internet was a technical revolution.

EU telcos telling Apple, Google to pay up
As predicted in our Telco CDN strategies white paper, telcos are feeling more and more pressure from online content services.
In our Telco CDN strategies white paper (25 pages, free, request it from your business email address) we describe the threats and opportunities and how CDN technology can help both content providers and network operators work together instead of fight. Both parties need each other!
Comcast vs Level3
Level3 took over the Netflix deal from Akamai. By undercutting Akamai’s pricing. That’s how they get their business, they buy market share purely on price. They have been offering CDN services at price points so low (isn’t price dumping illegal?) that there has to be a catch. And there is. Access providers are paying the bill.
I’ve been writing about this topic in general before, and it is my opinion that Level3 is falsely stating net neutrality abuse and is itself the cause of the problem with Comcast. Comcast wrote this to the FCC (which is the Goverment Communication agency in the USA).
Let’s go back to the basic principles of the Internet:
