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?
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.
