with those download speeds im gonna need a data server.
Do we have any scope on pricing yet?
And yeah, I think I need to get a NAS box with a bunch of 2tb drives
Will only take 35 seconds to blow through their "generous" monthly caps now.
while this sounds amazing, wont this mean that issues like that of cable in the states will begin to occur? Fibre can only take so much, and depending on how much is laid then wont that mean that we could begin to experience slows at peak times?(mind you, a slow wont really be that noticable except your full hd movie download will take an extra 5 seconds ) but still. And what about the backbones coming into australia, will they be able to handle all of australia trying to access data from overseas similtaniously at 1gbps?
Well, realistically while we could "have" that speed.
I can only imagine it being useful while downloading multiple files.
I can't imagine a file host being willing to push out 1gb of their bandwidth to 1 person.
I already can't fully utilize my current connection (Bigpond cable) unless I use steam. Steam I can rip it up at a bit over 2MB, but most web servers will only push files to me at 500-1000 kb
I've seen torrents decimate GBe connections... But this was in datacenters to other servers.
I was wondering when someone would get around to announcing this, they could relatively easily upgrade to 10gb+ if they wanted aswell.
You aren't trying hard enough, any akami data comes down to me at 4mb/second and i'll always hit 4mb/second when downloading a few torrents.
What's the point of having ultra fast connection if they only allow you a dismal amount of quota? And this is conjob we're talking about. Most probably just another one of his portal dreams.
I think 50 should be the new "budget" quota...
Surely with all the video streaming and HD content these days there'd be a bigger push for 50-100-200-500-1000 plans.
It really depends on how it's priced out.
IMHO, it'll be a similar system to what the States and much of Europe has, where quota's will be gone (or a soft limit of 500gb/1TB to stop ultra leechers) and you'll simply be paying for the line speed.
10mbit - $30p/m
50mbit - $50p/m
100mbit - $80p/m
1GBe - $120p/m
Given the fact that all datacenters and 93% of end users will not be connected by fibre, its also a good chance that local data won't be quota (possibly even speed) restricted. A lot of coutries, albeit smaller ones, have quota free internally, and only charge from the actual data that is brought in, into their network/country.
Indeed. But most likely they'd price it out like current dsl plans, which are quota based instead of speed based. Excuse will be, because it will be in line with current offering (meaning: Because we can charge you more).
Glad I have a data server already..
Wish they bring out those 100TB hard drives now.. lol
Haha like i've always said, ill believe this when i see them laying the fibre outside of my house.
Does anywhere in the world have FTTH and 1gbps speeds? I just don't see it happening here.
Shuuun the non believer, SHUN!
Much of Scandanavia, Estonia, Japan, South Korea. Want me to go on?
There's a lot of assumptions in this thread, with people talking about download quotas or speed shaped limits. Personally, I don't care what the internet providers come up with for plans as long as we've got the capability of hitting decent speeds. I'm sick to death of downloading at 100kbs just because I live a few kilometers away from the exchange.
FTTH is the way of the future for people like me. The market will sort out the plan pricing.
Hey, im just as likely to have a nerdgasm as anyone else over 1gbps internet speeds
Colour me skeptical/cynical/realistic
That's how I want it to be.
You can have it all, including my wallet, Mr. Lesner. Just don't hurt me.
