How much exactly is spent on web hosting per year across the world? I mean, is this just a multi million or a billion dollar industry?

Simply by using total amount earned in this industry dividing by number of providers would tell you how profitable this business would be!

Actually I forgot where I read it but they estimated by 2005, it will be a multi billion dollar business. =)

The latest prediction I heard was that the web hosting industry would generate $34 billion by 2006. IDC (http://idc.com) and Frost & Sullivan (http://frost.com) are two excellent places to get information like this.

But given the number of hosts being in the lurk, that kind of money is no big deal.

if he is using broadband it will be very slow :P
or does he have a T1 line?"Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning."

well, not necessarily. It depends where you live and how far you live from the ISP.
Cable here can reach up to 2MBPS =P

In Singapore, it doesnt really matter between your distance and the ISP. Singapore is far too small and the difference is rather minimal.
He is using a 512kbps unlimited access broadband connection
