This article focuses on Louisiana startup Network Foundation Technologies (NFT) and its peer-to-peer (P2P) technology. According to NFT President Marcus Morton, their technology can reduce more than 50 percent bandwidth needs which is one of the biggest costs for companies trying to broadcast live over the Internet. In March 2009, NFT plans to broadcast Arena Football League's games for free over the Internet.
