Super-speed broadband could arrive as early as ‘06: This would be nice. This would drop a full-length movie down to…five or six minutes, provided the upload was fast enough.
Broadband Internet access via TV cables will be able to hit 100 megabits per second as early as next year, 50 times faster than the average broadband speeds now offered to cable TV homes
Teleste […] and Cisco Systems, said it would early next year bring to the market its ethernet-to-home product, which will give consumers access to 100Mb/s speed.
This brings me back to a funny post somewhere a couple of years ago where some guy tried to prove that Big Media was paranoid for worrying about pirating so much. He recorded the SuperBowl into a 43GB file and tried to transfer it places — he tried to email it, tried to FTP it, etc.
The joke was that the file was too big to send anywhere. But I came away from reading that thinking, “Yeah, it’s too big now, but transmission speeds are going to get nothing but faster…”
Does anyone remember that bit and have a link to it?
