Collapse of the internet would severely affect our daily life.
Nemertes Research Group has reported that the increasing demand by users and customers to download and upload data may well clog the information superhighway in a few years.
The study suggests that the network is now struggling to conduct the huge amount of data, which contributes to reduced speed.
The study suggests that the improvement of the network's capacity would require a total outlay in the region of 137 billion dollars.
The Internet infrastructure and capacity might be insufficient to support popular Websites such as Google and YouTube and the projected slowdown could severely affect their operation.
Experts worry about serious effects resulting from the collapse of the Internet on the life of people in the electronic world of today.
