Fastest Internet Yet?
 
That new worlds fastest supercomputer made me think of this what I just read yesterday.

From the article:

How can you say, I want? I want bad.

Wont work for home users as we're limited to a gigabit ethernet adapter typically as well as typically commercially the fastest router/switch you can get is a gigabit.

hm...10Gbps acces with 1gbps network adapter...would that mean some kind of way to get rid of data limitation??? If the server can provide 10 time what user canuse...maybe? But they wont do it since they like making money...

Well the adapter in your machine isn't that big of a deal since you can get 10gb adapters for less than $500. Is it really worth it? Well at this point no, but it is nice to see it coming.

The router of course is another leap but hey just the fact that they have it running on existing hardware means that it is not too terribly far off.

I know that I would sure like this kind of speed. Of course with that speed I would need hard drives or SSD's that could keep up with it.

We'll eventually get there in speed. Right now i'm very happy with Bell Aliant as i have their high speed fibop package which delivers to my house a download speed of 75Mpbs and upload speed of 15Mpbs, with no cap.

Damn that is nice speed. Here I am happy with 25Mbps down and 2Mbps up.

That is wicked speed. The problem is that even though it will eventually be implemented in Canada, the providers will rob us blind for using it. We're already being bled dry for speeds and caps we have now. I wish I had the speeds I have here at work at home.

Damn and I tought I had a good deal with teksavvy 40$ for 5Mb/s and unlimited bandwidth.

Ah laval, the only server i've found so far that comes close to accurately saying what my net speeds are

Note: I am not getting internet from UNB, i just happen to be a hop to their backbone fibre and speed tests report it as such.

Wouldn't work for everybody, but if the modem were incorporated into a 1G router it'd be worthwhile to folks like myself who're running 5 PCs even if those PCs were only sucking 1G per. It'd also be well worthwhile for a multiple wireless setup (think hotspot in a motel/hotel).

Individual PCs would be limited by their own connection speed, but there'd be tons of overhead to allow for many PCs to connect without affecting the speeds of the other PCs.
