I read about this a few months back in umm, Scientific American or Popular Science or Popular Mechanics...one of them anyway. They've also got intense encryption methods going on; phishing will pretty much be obsolete, as well as viewing content that somebody else is looking at.

hahahaha ... here in SA our maximum that we can get is a 4mbps line and then most of the times you only get around 2mbps anyway ... And it's already very very expensive ... for a 4mbps line with a 5GB cap it's around R1000 ($133) a month ...

It sounds roughly a second a gig, so assuming your website is 300mb :P

10,000 times is really really fast. I'm thinking "Why would anyone need that much speed?" but I'm sure in 10 or 12 years I'll remember thinking that and start laughing at myself. That fast of an internet connection really is ridiculous though. You would need a whole bunch of super computers and mainframes just to take full advantage of it, it's not the kind of thing that Joe Consumer would use for watching youtube videos and checking email or cruising ozzu or something. But it sure would be nice to have for watching big huge HD movies..... :lol:

I really couldn't imagine communication moving in any other direction in the future. Now that we have the capability to setup and utilize such high speed networks, the Internet structure as it is now will soon fail to meet the load it's required to handle.

Even if the newer network isn't available to general consumers for a while yet, it's definitely a step in the right direction. I'd rather have them take the time to properly set up the network for future use than try and throw on nodes in the same ad-hoc fashion that our current Internet is formed from.
