The fastest-growing consumer media product since the VCR, broadband is a lightning-fast, always-on connection to a world of digitized media content — a technology that transforms the Internet from a dry medium of words and pictures to a multimedia extravaganza. Until recently, high-speed broadband data connectivity was purely the province of corporate America. But now, thanks to an ambitious multibillion-dollar investment by the telecommunications industry, broadband is fast becoming the most influential medium of communications since the telephone.

Planet Broadband, helps readers understand the looming era of broadband communications, and how they can profit and prosper from its onset. Written by Rouzbeh Yassini, founder and CEO of YAS Broadband Ventures and inventor of the cable modem, it begins with an observation about the broadband age. Each chapter discusses a key element or implication of the broadband era, including references to its historical development, explanations of how it works, and discussions of its influence on various elements of society. The book includes anecdotes, quotations, and interview excerpts from recognizable leaders in business and government thatreinforce the subject's importance.
