Akamai CEO: Mobile to Exceed Wired Internet Access in Under 5 Years
As Chief Executive Officer of Akamai, Paul Sagan is at the helm of the biggest content delivery network in the world. He was a fitting choice, then, to provide the introductory remarks on universal broadband and the National Broadband Plan on Day Two of the Aspen Institute Forum on Communications and Society.
Notable were Sagan's statements that "mobile will exceed wired access in less than three years," and that China has almost double Japan's number of unique IP address, leading to exponentially larger economic opportunity, and underscoring the recent New York Times article that "China Passes Japan to Become No. 2 Economy."
Watch Sagan's remarks in the video below, and review his presentation at the bottom of the page.
The Aspen Institute Forum on Communications and Society is being streamed live online, and returns for its third and final day on August 18, 10:45 AM EDT at http://aspeninstitute.tv. Other participants include Craig Newmark of Craigslist, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, Washington Post Editor Marcus Brauchli, NPR President Vivian Schiller, and many others.
