30gb Broadband

I met a CEO of IBM (and I highly doubt you'll believe me) and she told me that she has an internet connection of 1GB for free. Its one of the perks of working for a computer company. But 30GB seems a bit high to me - even for a country as high-tech as Japan.

Internet2 Technology acutally provides speeds up to 7.21 gbit's p/second (current high speed limit)

Single Stream Class: 216,300 terabit-meters per second by a team consisting of members from the University of Tokyo, the WIDE project, and Chelsio Communication and other organizations by sending 1485 gigabytes of data across 30,000 kilometers of network over 30 minutes at an average rate of 7.21 gigabits per second.

The internet2 project is being developed by many Universities worldwide (majority being in the United States). Take a peak at http://www.internet2.edu/communities-groups/advanced-networking-groups/performance-working-group/ to view all the info. I can't wait to see how the developement advances this year :(.

wt... thats crazy as lol... i'm using 1.5MBps and i think its pretty dam fast. :T 25MBps is still beig installled in australia and wont be available for a few months... i prob wont switch for a while though i'm pt happy with my current speed. its fine for the everyday things i do and its already pt expensive. wait a few years and the prices should drop dramatically.

Highest speed available to home users in the UK, is 24mbps, which is available on select telephone exchanges in London and other parts. At the moment, British Telecom is in the process of upgrading all telelphone exchanges to support 8mb, with a lot of home users possibly receiving broadband speed increases, some for free depending on your ISP. To give an example, you can now get 8Mbps broadband for Ł15! ($26 US)

If there was 30gb broadband commercially available, you'd find yourself limited by two things. The speed of the server, and the speed of your harddrive!

Why not? As soon as gigabit LAN is formed, gigabit internet service can come true. But that probably would take some time later for such service to exist. Currently the maximum broadband speed that I heard of is 25Mbps. Any faster elsewhere does anyone knows?


There are "BROADBAND" Speed toping out at over 13 GigaBits... and that isn't even scratching the surface of some of the ultra highspeed connections between major universities. Caltech alone shatterd the long running internet speed record of 23.2 GigaBits, and set the bar @ 101GigaBits. Even a true Dedicated T-3/OC3 line will run you upwards of 12,000 dollats per MONTH :lol:.

BTW, gigabit ethernet has been out almost as long as the CAT5e(ethernet) standard. Its just that people are too cheap and sont want to pay alot of money to have the right equipment and network cables. NOw however almost every buisness desktop has GigaBit ethernet, its just that a normal person has to go to a computer specialty store or buisness wholesale stroe to get true gigabit ethernet (CAT5e). However, for the avid DIY'er, for almost pennies on the doller you can buy like 100 ft. reels of gigabit ethernet cable from electrical suply depos, as well as a tools and end caps that will let you make your own custom length CAT5e cables. THis is a great thing, because it it can cut down on the possibilty for interferance an if you run the cable right people wont trip on them :lol: .

probably i will agree with u because it is technolized countryit holds a wireless broadband thats y it can holds a 30gb branband


uiop

I'd love to have a 30GB broadband connection. Can you imagine the speed?


kenny1122

well it depends what they are doing, i mean maybe those 30 gb are from a mail server or from some site..the curious thing is that i think it might be true, they have the latest techonlogy and maybe they just wanna make sure they are the best

in my eyes they have everything <_<

i believe though.....but its a company not a subscriber i think
