Possibly. Even though demand continues to rise quickly it's not like everything will just shut off (or make your whole computer slow and unresponsive :lol:) when it meets capacity...it'll just slow down a bit when demand is high around that bottleneck. It's exactly the same thing that happens on weekends when everyone is home downloading/uploading and stuff.

The best way to ensure bandwidth doesn't keep up with demand is to concentrate control of the internet under one roof. As long as we have businesses out to make a profit and provide good service, with internet providers wanting to deliver access to that service, I don't see how the internet could become "flooded."
