Publisher Comments:

Understand what broadband is, why it's the fastest growing consumer media product since the VCR, and what it means to you. Learn about the historical development of broadband and understand its future course. See how this technology will alter the way we live, think, and do business. Recognized leaders in business, academia, and government see broadband literally reshaping their institutions, through thought-provoking interviews and commentary.

The fastest-growing consumer media product since the VCR, broadband is a lightning-fast, always-on connection to a world of digitized media content — a technology that transforms the Internet from a dry medium of words and pictures to a multimedia extravaganza. Until recently, high-speed broadband data connectivity was purely the province of corporate America. But now, thanks to an ambitious multibillion-dollar investment by the telecommunications industry, broadband is fast becoming the most influential medium of communications since the telephone.

"Planet Broadband" helps readers understand the looming era of broadband communications, and how they can profit and prosper from its onset. Written by Rouzbeh Yassini, founder and CEO of YAS Broadband Ventures and inventor of the cable modem, it begins with an observation about the broadband age. Each chapter discusses a key element or implication of the broadband era, including references to its historical development, explanations of how it works, and discussions of its influence on various elements of society. The book includes anecdotes, quotations, and interview excerpts from recognizable leaders in business and government that reinforce the importance of broadband.

Broadband. It is the fastest-growing consumer media product since the VCR. Broadband is a lightning-fast, always-on connection to a world of digitized media content. It is a technology that transforms the Internet from a dry medium of words and pictures to a multimedia pipeline that delivers television shows on-demand, transports you to a school halfway across the globe, and saves your business millions while improving productivity. As people around the world become wired for broadband, we're beginning to see the dramatic impact broadband has on how we live, learn, work, and play in the post-industrial era.

Planet Broadband is a breakthrough book that goes beyond jargon-laden technical manuals to describe not just what broadband is but why broadband matters to everyday people. Learn how broadband connectivity can help solve some of the vexing environmental and social problems confronting us today, while improving our lives.
