Broadband comes to the house. In the USA, it’s hard to imagine a business area that has use of significant cloud storage and doesn’t have broadband availability. I’m sure it happens, but it doesn’t seem significant to the industry. — Tom

But Broadband is widely available in many areas now and those who don’t have it, usually have cell service. If you’re using a tablet or smartphone, you can still take advantage of the ubiquity and low cost of storage.

Even those who do face the simple fact that no matter how fast and big there is the conundrum that FedEx is faster and cheaper, if you are aware of the hypothetical comparison figures. But, cloud storage is very useful to whatever extent you can use it so enjoy the “Golden Age?”.
