What is the coming Exaflood?

The future? We all know video is becoming really popular on the Internet. But it is the highest bandwidth alternative out there. And now it's being used as a bogeyman to frighten users of broadband into paying more for what they already get. The promise of Internet brownouts is just around the corner as the next big scare -- Unless of course we have metered Internet connections.

ARSTechnica had a nice article on the latest ginned up 'crisis' to afflict the masses.

The biggest consequence of the 'coming exaflood crisis' appears to be as the excuse to raise broadband prices.
