The last paragraph says it all.

'For decades the internet has kept pace with our demands on it. And demand continues to grow.

And the service providers will continue to insist that the net will survive, and the doomsayers will continue to insist that it is just about to collapse.'

I for one will still sleep easy in my bed.

PS.Lifted the above paragraph from the BBC,my English grammer is rubbish,but when did it become OK to begin a sentence with and.

I get that most evenings after 4pm, when the kids turn on their home computers (50-1 contention).

"For decades the internet has kept pace with our demands on it."

Erm, not very many decades tho, eh? Certainly the common people have been using it for less than two decades.

The rules about starting a sentence with a conjuction, and a preposition, and split infinitives, (no, not all at the same time!), began to be moderated some time ago.

Language lives.

The internet has been around in one form or another since the 60's. I first used an internet connection in the 80's. So the article is correct when it mentions decades.
