Well I dont and have never watched poprngoarhic art so I wouldnt know. But yea, Aprils fools episode of the Simpsons. Homer and bart talking to each other. Actually I'll be up in the desert this weekend. I have to bring the ball and chain her school books out to 29 palms.

I guess my issue is more home network degsin. Until the new wireless protocol is affordable I'm forced to run cable all around my apartment to watch when everything else runs just fine on 802.11g (and actually b for most applications). But then I remember being a kid when 56k modems were the hot item and DSL was a world populated only by businesses who could afford thousands for a dedicated line. Perhaps in ten years we'll be talking about the limitations of Gbps broadband.Meep

Those "few other countries" have a land mass less than the size of Texas. Part of the challenge to providing ultra-fast broadband speeds to everybody is the sheer amount of rural space that the US has. The bigger the country, the harder it is to wire everybody up for electricity, phone, cable, internet, etc.

much more than 1 gbps would be a waste as most consumer grade equipment is capped at 1 gbps ports.

Kind of makes my Insight 10.0 seem incredibly slow. A few other countries have had 100+ Mbps for a few years now... Why are we so far behind? Why not aim for 2Gbps, or even 10 Gbps.
