For American members, what are your thoughts on the charimans challaenge that every state have a gigabit community by 2015?
For non-American members, is your government pushing gigabit internet in your communities?
I think if we can roll out gigabit internet to the largest communities around America we can begin developing more demanding applications that require high data speeds for it to be practical (cloud computing, server-side gaming, 4k video, distance learning, etc.). With the ever increasing number of devices connected tot he web, I think a gigabit backbone would really help our economy and the internet market here stateside.
I have a 75Mb/s up/down connection which I know is not bad but would kill for a gigabit one.
Would love to hear everyone's thoughts/opinions.
