I was reading two articles on broadband today – both heralding great increases in the speed of broadband in the near future. The first was an article on the BBC News site which talked about ADSL+. With ADSL+ (which is rolled out over plain copper) if you “live within 2km of a central exchange you can have up to 24 megabits to your home” – this is, of course in the UK. In Ireland, this will be rolled out grudgingly by Eircom in 2025 if we are lucky!
In another article on Broadband, I read where Verizon, in the US are rolling out high speed wireless broadband. In fact they plan to “offer 5-Mbit downloads/2-Mbit uploads for just $39.95 a month, or $34.95 a month as part of an existing Verizon plan. The mid-tier upgrade, however, will offer a whopping 15-Mbits/s down and 2-Mbits/s upstream for just $49.95 a month, or $44.95 a month as part of an existing package. Prices for the 30-Mbit offering have not been set.” 30-Mbit? That is unheard of connectivity! in this scenario movie downloads will be a very real possibility, as will live videoconferencing from the home and online gaming will be able to go into uncharted realms.
One thought on “Broadband gets broadbander!”
Hello friends! Really nice place here. I found a lot of interesting stuff all around.
