>10 Gigabit internet
Google fiber BTFO
Google isn't running Google Fiber as a serious competitive service. It's just doing it to see what kind of content and services it could provide in a community/environment/world where most/all people have Internet fast enough to make speeds not a practical issue.
and to be clear, by "community/environment/world" I mean whatever scope they're deploying it in. Right now they've only deployed in a handful of cities because each city represents another "n" in the sampling that is their broadband experiment.
>10 gigabit internet
>Implying even comercial grade products support this or will start supporting
My ISP has supported 10 gigabit forever and has a deployed infrastructure.
It's just unlisted and not runing for non comercial use.
So why bother.
>implying lonely little you can take benefit of a 10 gigabit line, as the only user
>implying any website has 10 gigabit connection to answer yor requests with
>implying your hard disk can read/write with 10 gigabit / sec
>implying that you would ever utilize a 10 gigabit/s connection even if you hosted a shitty little website nobody visits, an IRC server for your perverted friends and a seedbox to help the world get hentai downloaded fast.
you have no reason to be jealous, turn off your computer and go up to the living room and give your family the present of your presense.
I'm an Arab but was born in Sweden.
we don't even have fiber and we're not allowed to get it either because of the suburb.
meanwhile whenever I visit my relatives in Lebanon, they have actual cable internet.
when something like London riots happen here in Sweden, I'm going to enjoy myself.
being classified as a utility doesn't mean adopting every aspect of utility management that other utilities share. It just means that ISPs don't get to make distinctions about handling certain data in special ways (e.g. charging you a premium for streaming video or coercing Netflix into bribing ISPs so their content comes through at the same speed Youtube and Vimeo does).
But it's not the future. It's today. And I literally can't think of any service that utilizes an internet connection that could possibly give 10 gbps. Some hop between their server and my home isn't going to support that.
Again, *what are you going to do with it*? I'm not going to buy a fucking lightbulb if the wiring running to my house isn't hooked up to a power plant.
Bluray is just 1080p, you can already do that without 10 gbps. And more importantly, if you are going to stream whatever resolution would saturate that bandwidth, where are you streaming it *from*?
>Again, *what are you going to do with it*? I'm not going to buy a fucking lightbulb if the wiring running to my house isn't hooked up to a power plant.
I'm going to do everything faster.
>implying servers are using your shitty 5 mbps Comcast connection
If you get a faster connection, then the vast majority of sites will load faster because of it. Stop being retarded.
that was a real dumb analogy
here's a better one for you
>tow 5 tons every day with your company truck
>company announces they're upgrading their truck fleet
>now you can tow those 5 tons even more efficiently!
You seriously think companies are retarded enough to let you run unthrottled connections to their services? A single hping3 command and the whole site would go down if that were true.
No. My analogy wasn't perfect, but it's better than yours. I have ~50 mbps from comcast tunneled over a VPN right now, and can torrent, stream, and play vidya without saturating either's bandwidth. If you think that you'll see a significant difference between 1 and 10 gbps, you're fucking retarded.
>You seriously think companies are retarded enough to let you run unthrottled connections to their services? A single hping3 command and the whole site would go down if that were true.
Hey genius, if you spoof UDP sources you can do that if your connection is fast enough. You're a fucking retard. What the fuck are they going to do about it?
Actually, you're both retarded. A byte is not defined as 8 bits specifically. This comes down to an architecture's byte size, and even the choice of the OS. It is de facto standard that a byte is 8 bits, but it this is not actually standardised with a specification. This is why they're sold as bits per second as opposed to bytes per second, because the latter would be incorrect for many systems.
I count storage in bytes, so why shouldn't I count speed in bytes per second? We don't use different distance units when we compare distance and fuel efficiency (e.g. we use "miles" and "miles per gallon", not "miles" and "kilometers per liter")

God damn it, stop teasing me, Google!
I'm forced to use 3 megabit AT&T DSL with ~15% packet loss and pings that climb into the thousands periodically.
It's not even because I live in way out in the country or anything, they just provide really shitty service and refuse to fix it. And I can't switch to anything else because they have a monopoly.
I hate AT&T so much...
This is all exactly according to keikaku from Google's point of view.
Google Fiber was never supposed to be the best possible internet service. They half-assed it from the word "go." The whole point of it was to make established ISPs look like lazy assholes. Like, Google can do this amazing shit without even trying, and Comcast is still gouging people for upload speeds that only look good when compared with dialup.
Google doesn't give a fuck who you buy your bandwidth from, so long as you have enough of it for them to be able to exploit it in their web apps.
Just plug a 10Gb nic into a PC or Linux box.
I have 10Gb internet at work, it's pointless. Maximum download you get even off a fast site is only a few hundred Mbit. Never even come close to maxing out 1Gb let alone 10Gb.
so what? the whole point of Google Fiber was to force the ISPs to innovate their regional monopolies to faster connections to get people to consume more content, thats why Google only went in to extremely vulnerable markets
The only one that sounds like it even might be just stupid is the one you quoted with the humming birds. And maybe the one where the shots rang out
The rest are obviously jokes
The real story here is that they are offering symmetrical 1Gbps for $65. Symmetrical 100Mbps for $48. I would be all over that. Like a god damned hobo on a ham sandwich.
I currently have DSL with "up to" 5Mbps down and "up to" 1Mpbs up. I get 4 down and 600K up. And it fluctuates. I pay $90 per month.
The worst part is I live 25 to 35 miles from Minneapolis/Saint Paul.
>tfw I live in maplewood mn
I did find out that us internet provides internet to an office building near me, so they must be running fiber all over the metro...
Goddamnit why are all the faggy cities getting it all first. When are major areas getting this shit? South Florida, NY, LA, DFW, Houston, etc FUCK.
If its a utility it will be taxed and you'll be paying for tyrones/billybobs blazing fast porn downloads.
Not to mention they regulate whats in water..soon maybe whats in your internet.
This, why the fuck did it take dozens of posts to call the OP out for being retarded. Google made it clear from go that they started GF to make it known that AT&T/Comcast bitching about infrastructure cost was pure bullshit.
Also ITT: ISP shills convince you that you can't handle 10 Gbit speed
>headline about minneapolis
>all these obese little megachurch-going powerboat-loving gastronomically deprived exurbanites
>oh I live in bloomington/egan/excelsior/maplewood/forest lake/international falls/mcmurdo station/utopia planitia yards/goddamm deep space nine
Minneapolis is an actual location, it's not a feeling. You are not in minneapolis. You're probably impressed by the "gourmet food" section at Byerly's
>10 Gigabit internet
Jesus Christ that's incredible. I still can't get over how fast my fibre optic 55 Mbps is. But the 10 Gigabit is like a million times faster. We live in amazing times.
>pretty heavy user
>get about 3 megabytes download/sec
>couple of years pass, price goes up etc.
>DL speed suddenly cut to 1.6 megabytes/sec
>$70 for this shit
glad i have exactly two fucking ISP choices and the other one wants to charge $50 for 768kbyte dsl
