I see Moore's Law primarily as a goal setting for market competition. If competition dies, so will Moore's Law as the need for the behavior will no longer have a driver.
Can't disagree ... but that could change as content providers start offering alternate access methods.

That's the latest report from WWV ..... the important number is A-index which indicates the level of disturbance in the earth's geomagnetic field in the last 24 hours ....

With regulator eyes on Comcast-TWC, is AT&T's DirecTV purchase skating? • 2:03 PM Jason Aycock, SA News Editor
With the proposed merger of Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (NYSE:TWC) getting all the oxygen from the post-net-neutrality FCC, the $48.5B deal that AT&T (NYSE:T) has to acquire DirecTV (NASDAQ:DTV) appears to be getting a relatively free pass.
Both deals will create a company controlling more than a quarter of pay TV -- so it may be Internet access that's drawing extra scrutiny. The combined Comcast-TWC company would serve high-speed Internet to almost 40% of Americans.
Even FCC petitions opposing the deals are telling: 20 against Comcast-TWC, five against AT&T-DirecTV. And 88,000 brief comments opposing Comcast-TWC, 14,000 opposing AT&T-DirecTV.
Eventually, both industries will be sold to smaller companies, for whom the reduced income is enough. And then finally, someone will buy what's left to reclaim the copper assets.
Does it suck for those that have to deal with the resulting monopoly? Yes. But that just means that regulatory limits need to be imposed to maintain a level of service and prevent predatory cash extraction during the death throes.
