Just when we’ve begun to get a handle on Cloud Computing, one of the major telecommunications carriers has come up with an even more mysterious term, Uppernet. I guess that we’ve got to credit the marketing department with the new idea. Now, understand, this technology pro doesn’t yet have a clue about what they are getting at or trying to reach. Maybe its left as a mystery to get curious bloggers like me to write silly articles about it that pose serious questions or even poke fun at the term.
Whoever credited Al Gore with inventing the Internet probably had something to do with creating the Uppernet. The term smacks of a higher purpose or loftier goals – in our dreams, of course. For now, though, I am going to presume that it refers to higher income brackets and folks who can afford to spend more of their hard-earned on bandwidth so that profits can grow “higher”.
Please comment if you will about your notions of just what Uppernet may be!
