Not just consumers! Businesses are willing to do that, too. Witness
the growth of using the Internet to connect offices instead of leased
lines. Not only are many businesses replacing some of their leased
lines with less reliable, less secure and (sometimes even) slower
Internet connections, but far more had already made it clear, by leaving
potential links unconnected until the Internet came along, that cost,
not quality, was the key factor.
The Internet itself is shining proof yet again that the, "cheap, and
lots of it," strategy tends to be a real winner.
