Internet ‘rationing’ needed as UK cannot keep up with demand
“The Internet is already consuming at least 8 per cent of Britain’s power output, equivalent to the output of three nuclear power stations, and demand is soaring,” Andrew Ellis, professor of optical communications at Aston University, told the Sunday Times.
He said: “It is growing so fast, currently at an exponential rate, that, in theory, it could be using all the UK power generation by 2035.
“We cannot make all that extra power, so we will have to restrict or reduce access, perhaps by metering consumers so they pay for what they use.”
So, who in Britain is getting free electricity? Anyone?
Therefore it is already metered and restricted, isn’t it.
