New technologies sometimes result in disruptive changes to the existing infrastructure. Without adequate foresight, industry, academia, and government can be caught flat-footed. In this work, we focus on the trends surrounding home Internet bandwidth — the bandwidth required by end user applications at home. As building and managing last mile network infrastructure incurs substantial cost, the foresight of such trends is necessary to plan upgrades. Using a bottom-up approach, we look at four potentially disruptive technologies, including millimeter wave wireless (mm-wave), the Internet of Things (IoT), Fog Computing, and Software Defined Networking (SDN).
