However, the apps that we use – whether running on our computers or on the cloud – are increasingly sophisticated, and often seem to grow at the same pace as the upgrades.

To help curb some of the bandwidth pain, Jim MacLeod of WildPackets provides common issues and illustrates how to identify and overcome them.
