    That is incredible, but how feasable is it? Seems to me that isn't gonig to be very cheap or maintain.

    INCREDIBLE, I sense that in a few years, this may take the role of DSL. I get really excited when I hear of advancements like this, what are the chances that this new technology will be released to the public any time soon? Either way, FAST is going to have limitless possibilities :bounce: .

    Hey, in a few years people will laugh at you if you don't have it. You will need it just to play Quake IX online.

    I bet the goverment (or some other spy like organisation) is already using this right now.

    Or even that ECHELON (or something like that) must be using to collect terbytes of data to analayse.
