Great, another tool for the rest of the world to kick our asses in download speeds.

So fiber optics??

For a subscription fee that bricks your device if you don't kep up on it.

Compare the square footage and populations of those countries with faster internet to the area and population of the United States. Just sayin.

For those of you who lack an understanding of optical networking... big deal... really big deal.

A whole new generation of applications become possible, not dependent on locally installed code. Basically, heavyweight apps which require a download or DVD(network) install becomes possible.

The days of spinning disks draws to a close.

RIP RAID... RIP

Or we could open up the old unused television bandwidth and make shiate so awesome our heads explode.

Can you say, no more local hard drives? Everything on a cloud with apps that can be accessed remotely?

But you only get 2 gigs per month, because fark you.

Placed between the waveguides is an optical resonator in the shape of a microscale donut (like a mini-Hadron collider.)

That's... not at all a helpful analogy.

I shudder at the thought...I don't want my data in some other company's "cloud" which is available to me at their discretion. I'll keep physical custody thank you very much.

That's OK, it's better because it's SHARED data for all of America. Because why not? If it's so much better to have shared data for the family (according to Verizon), think of how exponentially more awesome it would be to share that 2 gigs with everyone.

I'm with you... You could give me all the free bandwidth in the world and I would still keep my shiat with me... But I would definitely use all the free bandwidth in the world for backing up terabytes of crap...

Imagine download speeds measured in terratits.

Opening up a whole new world of "How many to change a lightbulb" jokes.

How many techs will it take to change a lightbulb? One, but because the WHOLE INTERNET is down, we couldn't place the service ticket...

That's a cop out excuse a lot of people like to use to try to justify American ISPs being completely incompetent.

This is fantastic! My area just got DSL two years ago, so I really feel I haven't used that technology long enough to consider switching.

Which still does not remotely excuse places like New York.

Nevermind the fact that US taxpayers have long since paid for better infrastructure.

could greatly increase the speed of downloading information online and reduce the cost of Internet transmission.

That article cites South Korea as a place with great broadband coverage. Good for them.
South Korea squeezes 50 million people into a land area slightly smaller than Ohio. Nothing but respect for the South Koreans, but getting the same coverage levels in the US is going to be astronomically higher- 6 times as many people in an area 100 times the size.

Dont expect to see any physical changes in your home... this will be implemented behind the scenes at internet infrastructure sites. Just expect your pings to decrease.

Just bullsh*t. If area and population density were such a huge issue, then why don't people in the northeast (new york, boston, philly, baltimore, DC), the southeast (atlanta metro), the san diego-los angeles and seattle-tacoma corridors, chicago metro, and so on have speeds comparable to the rest of the industrialized world?

I'll tell ya why... GREED. Too many corporations have monopolies or duopolies in this country, and don't see the need to expand, upgrade or improve a system that rakes in so much farking cash for them while they do nothing but sit on their asses.

If you're out in the flat flyover part of the country where you can't see your neighbor;s house without walking at least an hour, sucks to be you. But if you live where can literally hear your neighbor's cat cough through the wall, then there's no other excuse but GREED.

In other news, MPAA execs commit suicide, replacement execs say optic intenet is an evil pirate technology and it should be a felony to sell or use the service.
