What do you propose Google has copied?

For you maybe.

Ive got 12,000 tracks uploaded to Google Music. All matched perfectly with artwork showing. No issues at all.

Each to their own though.

Must admit that i'm of the same opinion, was streaming music this afternoon, all worked perfectly.

I also have a large amount matched with artwork showing.

About 50% matched and nothing special about my music collection. Mainly ripped CDs, no special formats. Of those that were matched, probably around 60% have artwork. Also UI fairly crude in my opinion.

I have Google Music Manager installed, but it doesn't appear to be doing any matching, only uploading. Any ideas how to get this working?

Thanks.

I thought this at first as well but if you notice, the number of songs that gets "uploaded" is much faster than your upload speed. Those are the ones getting matched.

No! To get more bandwidth, the networks have to expand. That involves laying more fiber optics. It can only happen in bursts. Also, as more people use bandwidth, it becomes more scarce. As more people use flash storage, it's just mass-produced more.

It is cheaper nowadays, by quite a bit, Though the more people require it, the more the telcos need to up their game and lay more fiber.

...but that's a cost that's recouped fairly quickly.

We aren't even nearly using the full capacity on the major intercontinental fibre links that already exist and fibre technology is becoming cheaper and cheaper. I've got a map of the worlds major links somewhere (unfortunately I can't find it right now) and it shows that only somewhere between 1/3 - 1/2 of the physical fibres in these links have been provisioned (i.e "lit").

When the telcos lay fibre they typically massively over-deploy and most of the costs aren't for the fibre itself, but for getting it in the ground/under the ocean.

I work in the webhosting industry and I know for a fact that bandwidth prices have dramatically decreased in the last few years. The price we pay per Mbit is about 1/5 what it was 5 years ago.

This price decrease is partly offset by the greater bandwidth requirements due to things like smartphones etc and the bandwidth requirements of streaming video.

What has increased recently (at least in my area of the world), is colocation costs in datacentres.

It is cheaper, but storage is getting cheaper extremely quickly.
