What does this mean for marketers? It’s pretty simple. Faster connection speeds means less lag and cleaner delivery of content whether it is advertising, posts or whatever.

Of course, it will be incumbent upon marketers and do what people do when they have more money. Meaning that people spend to their level of available cash in many cases. With connection speeds increasing, marketers have to be careful not to go over board with their use of super-rich media which will only get slowed down no matter what bandwidth is available.
