well, that comment about powerline data transfer way back is interesting. the reason the idea pretty much got nixed is that the bandwidth given (220mbps) is in the verey high range of what is possible, the usual with real world circumstances was around 10-ish or so mbps.

sounds great, no?

the caveat is, that this is the bandwidth that can be used from the substation.

the data is modulated onto the powerline at the substation, and every house behind that would share the bandwidth. take a neighborhood with a hundred houses on one substation, and you see why dsl and isdn pretty much precluded the investment into this technology.

Yeah I figured something like that since I never really heard anymore about it but that one article I read a few years back, I just happen to think about it when I saw VanBuren's 100Mbps speed.

Either way The U.S. has to get it together and get some new technology out there so we can start seeing these types of speeds in a real world enviroment.

but it's like anything i guess they want to suck every $ they can get from old Tech before applying the new.

why bother with rolling out new tech? seriously, where there is cable coverage, running data over that is plenty fast enough.

i know there will be people out there saying they want 100/100. ok, i want a porsche too. but i don't /need/ it.

as for vb, well, when the wall came dow, the one in germany, they laid fiber to a lot of the customers there for phone service, since it was the holy grail of telecommunications at the time.

as for useful, well, they can't even get dsl, since that is a tech intended for wired hookups, not fiber.

my guess is that vb is in the position that the telecomms up there have done something similar, laying fiber to the end customer. therefore it is a small additional investment for the isp to be able to offer very high speed internet, capped for traffic so people don't go hosting for free.

the population density where he lives is probably not very high, meaning the isps dont need to have topo much bandwidth of their own to supply an area. if it was someplace like the new york area for example, i doubt they could supply it, since the density of hookups there would neccesitate huge hookups on the isps side. even for vb, i would wager that if all the isps customers start pulling data at full speed at once, there will be a bottleneck on the backbone.

basically, new tech is fine, but the practicality and neccessity of it is often not there. upgrade what's there, and it will probably be cheaper. there are times when it /does/ make sense to stay one or two generations behind the cutting edge, it reduces cost dramatically if the newest gen tech is not needed.
