      P.S. Do you think it is fast enough for me?

      That’s enough data flow to download three seamless months worth of HD video in a single second.

      I guess that I'll have to prevent the Cat & Dog from tweeting each other during Peak hours then . I've already had to ban them from using Facebook.

      I found some of the comments at the end of the link funny. One person swore blind that it is needed commercially now due to the level of Torrent Traffic.

      I guess to that we will all have 100Gbit routers and WiFi before then too.

      For the present though, this technology would benefit the infrastructure. Links between countries, ISPs and perhaps the exchanges could be greatly improved IMHO. Currently connections between Europe and the USA, for example, produce slow pings. These could be improved for the ever-hungry data market.

      Someone else mentioned how slow the Internet is in remote locations. Sadly this tech alone won't improve things there. More ground work is needed first, such as laying fibre-optic trunking. This might prove a little difficult in the middle of the Congo or Brazilian Jungles. As for the Jungles in Malaysia, I don't think the cable would last too long as someone would be sure to try to tap into it mis-stream.
