The broadband internet industry brings extraordinary opportunities to businesses and individuals.

Amazon is taking over the online shopping world! Sound like a broken record? This may not exactly be new news, but the scale of it might surprise you. Did you know that almost 50% of all online purchases start on Amazon?
