I'm sure Japan has people who eat horse paste and think 5g causes COVID.


Those people are American tourists, but still...

Japan has them. What they don't have is a constitution that allows some of the dumbest people imaginable to override national public health policy in any prefecture.

The article wasn't clear if they got that bandwidth from a single fiber.

So disk drive read/write speeds will be the big bottleneck?

319 terabits per second. That's a lot of porn!

Honestly, if we're going to be eating butt paste, maybe we don't deserve good internet.

/just wish we paid developing world prices for developing world internet.

fark Comcast and their 5Mbps upload speeds.  My willingness to overpay for a house nearby with fiber as an option is reaching critical levels.  My friend pays $40/mo for 200 down/200 up while I'm stuck with $70/mo for 70/5.  I hate satellite clutter, but I wish I'd put in for the Starlink beta a while ago.

This is nothing new. I can attest to the fact that things always move faster with me when I get more fiber.

I pay $35 for 300down/300up. AT&T Fiber is a glorious thing.
