The "all you can eat" plate of high-speed broadband access delivered to home users will shift increasingly in the near future to a "tiered" system in the U.S., says Andrew Grant, Industry Marketing Manager for Akamai.

In this segment, Grant explains the changing economics of content delivery and the bandwidth demands of exploding video consumption. He makes his comments on the upcoming tiering based on industry sources, not on plans or policies at Akamai.

Grant was interviewed by CNET senior writer Maggie Reardon during a two-hour Webcast produced last week at the Manhattan offices of Livestream.
