    In 2000, companies spent $35 billion to build Internet data communications capability in high-speed networks.  This has created a gut in capacity of high speed, long haul information pipe lines.  Only 5% of the fiber in the ground is turned on.  Costs for an enterprise to turn on a fiber network are $500 million and it takes 15 months.   At the same time, economies have slowed worldwide.  The anticipation of a revolution brought by the Internet created unrealistic expectations of market growth.  The revolution is intact, the change is coming, and the economies of scale predicted are being implemented.  However, the economic pie is smaller.  This report surveys the potential for companies to seize limited growth opportunities.      Falling telecommunications network costs are spurring a core network backbone with provided switching.  The proprietary circuit switches that cost $1 million can be replaced with a $150,000 Sun or IBM server loaded with soft switch software that may cost $300,000.  There may be more profit in selling less gear, surely the overall market size will decrease as more efficient equipment in put into network architecture. 

    Markets will develop, what is needed is applications that are compelling enough to make everyone, companies and people at home want to use the Internet at high speed.
