For this to be a truly reolutionary jump they will need to be able to do this on EXISTING cable… nobody’s gonna rip up old fiber and replace it with new fiber JUST to get a 1000x increase in speed. They’ll have to do better with existing cable first… it’s quite possible if they can get this technology ready for commercial use, all NEW builds might just end up using the newer cables if they aren’t substantially more costly to make…
Doesn’t matter. The ISPs will throttle us down to 500kbps anyway. LOL.
cool, my entire porn collection in 3 seconds
I think I just heard a collective groan from the headquarters of the RIAA and MPAA.
Their entire back catalogs to your computer in a second or two
NTT needs to get these innovations out of the labs and into commerical production… The biggest buyers of this cabling would be for international undersea cabling that could have the 1000 fold increase in throughput. As it is, international bandwidth is at a premium and is throttled among the major telecom companies… imagine getting your full tier capacity to almost any country around the world?!? This cable could ensure that and more…
Also, internet-2 cabling could aggregate with fewer actual fibers-- 1 or 2 vs dozens of fibers multiplexed.
BTW, these are internet backbone aggregation technologies, no actual consumer would see this kind of cabling bandwidth in home local networking equipment for another 20 years.
A 57km cable. Boy. Just imagine how much faster this would make Windows!!
I get over 100mbs downstream and 100mbs upstream and my computer is no faster than the guy who has 50mbs up and down. (At least I cant see it) I dont upload that much) but most of my downloads are limited by the server I am downloading from , not my connection.

Where are you getting those speeds and which company?

Verizon and I pay through the nose, but I got over 100mbs downstream from my cable company. Only 2 upstream though.

…and I shudder to think of the cost
