Fastest broadband speed in the world
Alcatel-Lucent and BT have achieved the fastest real-world fibre speeds using existing fibre networks
If internet connections at even a tenth of this were the norm; could you justify even owning a large capacity HDD?
And, as someone currently making do with a 200Mbps cable connection after having spent three months trialling a 500Mbps package (endless grief with my ISP so I switched back) and looking forward to my new apartment as of 1 March that will have a 1Gbps fibre connection, I can attest to this fact.
I used to keep all sorts of crap installed on my hard drives, whether I was going to use it or not purely because, should I suddenly feel like it, I don't want to spend three days downloading it all over again.
Waiting 30-minutes for a download? Yeah, I don't have a problem with that. Three days? GFY.
But either way, I like a fast connection just because I can afford it and five minutes is still better than thirty
Digital distribution is full of win
Wow I just need one tenth of that speed and I will be happy.looks at 3g dongle and shakes head.
