    What's the point? You need some pretty hefty hardware to fully take advantage of something like that.

    I live in Japan an man it sucks to be an NTT customer living with my 'paltry' 100Mb/s. Oh well, I live in an apartment so couldn't get this crazy fast service anyway.

    Is it not 125MB per second, 8 bits in a byte and all that?

    1Gb not 1GB, small b for bit instead of B for byte

    Just... wow. I have 20MB broadband over here and the pathetic 768KB upload speed is crippling it. It takes forever to upload stuff to my webspace.

    i'm paying $45/month here in Canada for cable that downloads 6+ Mbps and up 768kb.... which is good.

    but the 90GBb/month is a pain :(

    Shocking!

    Why not Virgin Media take example? Maybe they've taken already... from 3rd world countries introducing 'Fair Usage Crap'
