    Assumed it was 100/100 since you did not specify.

    100/10 at $24/month is still a decent deal, though.

    To put prices in perspective.... We pay $70.00 incl taxes for 6/1 which translates into rather 3/0.5 in reality.
    And are oversold, which causes horrendous latency problems on top.

    I really hope this makes it to my area. Right now, I'm paying $85 a month for tv/internet and only getting 7-8Mbps download. I'd happily switch to their service for at least internet.

    You scared mama gets to see porn adds all of a sudden, cause you secretly surfed for it?

    I always thought that only people who have something to hide have to be too concerned about anonymity within their own home.

    I'm paying 400 DKK/month for my internet atm, which is roughly 68.7 USD. And I only have a 20mb connection. WTB :<

    It's not that absurd considering you get 100mb line for like 25$ in civilized countries..

    Keeping my fingers crossed for this. We are not to far from some major trunks so I could see us getting it within the next couple of years.

    Hehe... At the rate porn sites are springing up? In a decade or two there won't be room for anything else on the internet.

But they could make it even faster if they wanted to, the limitations aren't the wiring anymore but the computers themselves. If I understood correctly, glassfiber is a super-conductor which is able to transmit data at near light-speed. 1000Mbit/s is nothing compared to light-speed. But yeah, like I said the limitation is the computer and their chips right now.

    Anyway, a large portion of my country is already using glass-fiber. They installed it before they knew it was such a good conducter, they installed it because it was the cheaper option back then. However, sadly it's just the main wiring, the house to house wiring isn't glassfiber yet. Because of that I'm stuck on 120Mbit/s currently. So yeah, I'm a little envious of 1000Mbit/s. I bet all new houses built will get glass-fiber right away though, and I hope they upgrade the old stuff soon because I like fast internet
    Eh.... Yeah, that's not exactly true...Or rather, it's not true at all.

    First, HFC connections which have a hybrid coax copper and fiber infrastructure have a maximum practical tested speed of 5.6 Gbps. This in 2011. Second, passive fiber (GPON) has been tested, again in real life, to a maximum practical value of 10 Gbps in 2010. Most current GPON fiber implementations can support 2.5 Gbps and are limited only at the BBRAS. Think of it as everyone simply not opening the tap completely and instead just letting things drip a bit.

    The real limitation at the moment is in the core network of the ISPs. Passive fiber will increase slowly, active fiber is utopicly expensive.

    Also, you might want to consider just how much you need 1 Gbps transfer... Check your regular use, and see if what percentage of that you could constantly occupy.

    Also you would need some fast discs, either SSD or a raid setup, and DL at max speed a 2x7200rpm in Raid 0 will barely keep up and probably slow down your systems other functions quite significantly.
    I believe it's unlimited DL. They also offer 5/1 speeds for free. Yeah it's not much but it's free dammit.

    Pretty sure most serious internet users have at least one SSD nowadays. I have a 120 GB SSD coupled with a 750 GB HDD.

    I have Comcast and I think I'm the only person who has no problem with them.

    I just wish their speeds were faster and cheaper.

    Not absurd? 1000mpbs for like $40 more?

    That's like buying a Ferrari for the cost of a Kia.

    Google is Skynet, and their "engineers" are actually Terminators. They are "mapping" everything in preparation for "bombing" everything.

    But, as long as I get good download speeds... I'm okay with that.
