My internet prediction.

Time Warner is going to start charging by the byte so to speak for internet usage:

Time Warner Cable this week said it will move away from the “buffet” model of broadband and start experimenting with a “metered” model. The cable operator is rolling out a trial program in Beaumont, Texas, in which customers will be charged based on the amount of bandwidth they use.

Of course this will put the US even further behind in broadband adoption while countries such as Japan have no problem providing speeds in excess of 100Mbps for less.

Though I predict that when Time Warner decides to provide their own TV/movie/content delivery service there will suddenly be plenty of bandwidth for every paying subscriber.
