[quote="Yaraslau":1wad6uai]SoldjahBoy,

100 mbps is nice (my 296 kbps is beyond your imagination), but how many sites can handle such speed?[/quote:1wad6uai]

It's not exactly about one single site handling it... it's about being able to do many things at one time without the general internet performance being slowed down. For example, downloading from a torrent site, while watching YouTube or playing a game online. Also doing these things on multiple computers at one time... I have 5 systems in the house going all at once usually.

[quote="deadeye":1wad6uai]Yeah, I was gonna say... what's the point of having the highest speeds available if your government is gonna censor all the good stuff anyway? :P[/quote:1wad6uai]

It will never happen. The technoloigy is far too broken to even work properly, and all of the ISP's are refusing to implement the technology since it would send the majority of them broke.

If it does get put in place, it won't last long before they have to roll-back on the idea, which then means it will never see the light of day again. There are too many reasons for it to never go ahead though... so as far as I am concerned it is still a scare tactic by the misinformed and uneducated government officials. Again, if it does go ahead they are going to have one angry-ass public on their hands with which they will not know how to handle.

Nice! Congratulations! :D I can reach 26 kilobytes per second at home and 65 kilobytes per second at work. But my provider will implement HSPA+ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolved_HSPA) in 2010, so I will wait for that - so happy - event. Maybe, one day, my speed will beat your speed. Who knows...

The maximum speed of Internet channel in my country is 2 megabit per second (for an ordinary user), scientific institutions have 0.5 - 10 megabit per second and more (used in the Grid Internet calculations, the full speed is unknown). Mobile Internet can reach up to 7,2 megabit per second.

Crazy world...

Wow man where do you live? I thought we had slow internet here... that's unbearable :/

I average around 600kb/sec to 900kb/sec download off most sites... while certain sites (like local stuff, Microsoft, other large international sites etc) I get like 1.5-1.8Mb/sec...

And I'm still complaining :/
