    40Gb/sec ..... <swoon> ........ heck, that's faster than some computers can process stuff!

    I'd be well pleased with 1Gb!

    Or is she actually viewing the internet at 40gb/sec...

    i liked my comcast connection before i moved. 1MB/second.

    my friend has fiber to the house from surewest. 40000Kbps
    To those that paid for my freedom,
    I WILL NEVER FORGET.

    As with all statements I've made and All that I will make, please check your local laws to verify accuracy. (and if i'm wrong let me know as I like to be right in the future) After all I'm just some goofball posting on an internet forum.

    Yeah, it would totally overload most sites out on the net. The only movies she'd be downloading that fast would be on the next hop on the connection.

    Still though, 40 gigabit over 1200 miles is insane. I thought our 10gig links at work were fast. :p

    But... But...the internet is a series of pipes.... and and..... won't she such all the information from the whole world???
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.
