Post 100-Mbit Cable Internet To Hit U.S. In 2006

http://www.extremetech.com/article2/...1839129,00.asp

Broadband Internet access via TV cables can reach 100 Megabits per second as early as next year, 50 times faster than the average broadband speeds now offered to cable TV homes, a Finnish firm said on Wednesday.


I cant wait

50 euros ($60.28) and 200 euros ($241)

oh yeah, that will be popular...

May-be if you build some servers and rent them out to gamers from your home... But, other then that... it's too expensive.

VerizonFIOS (sadly DSL) - verizonfios.com - already has some amazing packages released. Price gap is really wide but they provide 15mbps / 2mbps for $50 and then amazingly 30mbps / 5mbps for $200. Second price is amazingly high but that just goes to show you that the Bandwidth will be available but at probably really high prices.
