On the news yesterday they interviewed a guy here in sweden that made his own modem and network card for his computer. He ended up with a speed of 40Gbit/sec (not Mbit as most broadband connections). Apperently its the fastest speed ever made for download in the world today. it took 2 secs to download a Dvd movie he said...
mmmm future...



@ GH_Klingstroem; Sorry m8. These forums are rated "E" for everyone, including young kids, and I could not allow that title to stay, (although I personally felt it wasn't explicative enough given the topic). I hope you understand sir. Quazi

Wouldn't that set fire to his phone line? Can his hard drive write that fast? Sounds like WAH! to me.

Well better find the 40Gbit/sec from the other side to be able to download that fast..

Impossible, at least as far as he's claiming(?) that he was connected to his ISP w/ a bitrate this high because the other end wouldn't have supported it anyway.

So I'm not buying this rumour, sorry http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

But OK, if it was all prearranged then I'm not saying anything...

you can download from p2p programs from thousands of sources at a time

He could have done this in theory by p2p, but finding such an ISP might be another matter.

99% of ISP's watch for high traffic singular connections PRECISELY due to p2p and swarming type applications.

You go above your contracted rate = they pull your plug

It was arranged with an ISP in his mothers home town to demonstrate the power of fibre connection to all houses. The guy himself lives in us.

I was wondering since phone copper can carry DSL and a dialup at the same time which might
run into the Mbps but that's it.
Here in the US are people getting 'stranded' when their DSL won't run on the fibre upgrades.
Perhaps it's only a matter of modem.

Ahhhh, but is he able to reduce the ping? Do that and the online gaming community would make
statues of you all over the world! (even if they are small to fit on the PC)

It'd take longer than 2 seconds to write the DVD to the drive, never mind download it.
