    I'm still on a 4 Mbit connection so I'd already be really impressed with one 3.5" diskette per second.

    That is soooo impossible in real life enviroment. It works in lab with under 1m long cable. Long as nothing can support that fast transfer its just in paper.
    HD,CPU,RAM cannot handle that all.

    Can a hard drive even write fast enough to keep up with a 30 terabit/s download?

    Rather the need for a local drive and memory would seem to be obsolete.

    Well then we'll see that kind of speed in 65 years in Ontario. It will cost $500 a month and have a 60GB cap (which has always been the standard which they refuse to increase over the years).

    A 6.25 megabyte connection costs $150 a month here not including the plethora of other charges such as modem cost per month, the endless forms of taxes and other hidden fees. To top it off it still has a retarded bandwidth cap, pretty much defeating the purpose of having faster transfer rates. For now I'll stick with my garbage $67/m 1.25MB/s connection offered by the company which literally has a monopoly over my home area. :bang:

    almost Unlimited Power!

    Has anyone mentioned OnLIVE? this connection could make 2K/120Hz remote gaming possible For the Ultimate Win!:nerd:

    Just imagine how many frivolous social-networking sites will poop-up to hog it all.

    Not to mention almost everyone will be able see anything, anywhere, anytime.

    This isn't the kind of technology targeted at home users. It's the tech they use to link major universities and inter-national connections. Lines that fast are shared by thousands of computers.
