Boosting Internet Speed

Hi everyone! Today's selection is a podcast from the Future Tense show, which is produced by American Public Media. In this podcast, Jon Gordon talks with James Baker, Presdient of WiBoost, about his company's approach to boosting Internet speeds by sharing DSL connections in a neighborhood. This podcast was posted to the web on 17 January 2006 at:

The show notes included:

"Two startup companies are working on new wireless technologies that will let neighbors tie together their DSL and cable modems to make for a much faster Internet connection. Both Mushroom Networks of San Diego and WiBoost of Seattle plan to sell technology that will gather unused Internet capacity from neighbors. One possible roadblock is possible opposition from Internet service providers, which have fought the sharing of Internet connections in the past."

I hope you enjoy this podcast!

Best regards,
