1-10Gbps to the house i think not. think how much more money they can make by slow rasing the speeds. im sure intel/AMD can make a 5GHz processor are they going to do it no there not that stupid.

yes its very true, Intel is the company fronting this, The already have the cards and cables. 1GBPS eathernet is already hear, 10GBPS Eathernet is on its way, with in 6months, SATA 2 is on its way, with in 3 months USB3 will start making its way through in about 2-4 months, The speed is there only 1 thing has to be done and thats running new cables. So beleve it.

Its already started with verizon FIOS. Fiber tops out at 800MBPS so far with a distance of about 20,000 FT. The biggest problem is your HD can only right at 150MBPS when SATA2 starts being used then its 300MBPS.

I dont care what anyone says... Bellsouth is great. I had all 3 of there dsl's and i currently have Xtreme and couldnt be happier. I had adelphia and 1st of all their customer/tech support is awful, they dont know what they are talkin bout cuz i had them come to my house 3 times for the internet and they never found a problem even though the internet was eather slow or offline. 2nd, the ping i had with them SUCKED (i play cs and my neighbor who has BS ultra, always had lower ping then me). The only good thing w/ cable is the DL speed i always had 500+kb/s. Now for BS everything is awsome, the pings are always low >50, and i constantly DL at 370kb/s. PLUS dsl is more reliable....

I just asked a friend of mine that works for Bellsouth Support if this was true.  This was his reply:

-- snip --

the story is true, the 6Mx1.5 is gonna be released in a few weeks the 9M circuit is still being Beta tested and we need to figure out what type of router can handle that speed.

-- snip --

I highly doubt that if this was untrue that multiple people who "work for Bellsouth" would have the wrong info.  Unless we know the same guy ;-)
