How true that statement is!

Isn't extreme high speed network a precursor to cloud computing?
I don't think computer hardware or software is that expensive compared to broadband bandwidth charges in India.

May be suitable for leased lines by corporates - but to Individual/"retail customers" as we call it - no.

from what i understand, its not about standard hardware / software thats driving the so called cloud computing principle.
those services would be available for 'free' in a cloud i guess. take an example of google docs !

paid service is more so to do with high end hardware (servers / extreme storage space / multi location networking etc.) and specialised / costly software services.
