I'm banning myself from talking about bitcoin.
Hospital, businesses sure.....
100mps is MAX...... Put it this way I know people with fibre all way. Took scheapest plan of 12mbps. Ended with 1 or 2.... They bumped it up to the 100mbps and they now get between 20-35.
The servers from provider also have to be able to handle it all. You will also notice theyve changed the way word contracts with speeds.
All now say UP TOO......
It smells like success.
I still don't know why I haven't clicked on that yet.
You want to know what success smells like now dont you buddy......
Lemme guess... it's somewhere between your anus and your ballsack?
Not falling for that trick twice are you!!!
No chance. Pushing the hemmorhoids out of the way will haunt me forever.
Is there something about fibre optics that means no overhead?
By overhead do you mean signal loss?
Its glass would work but its such a thin cable would have to be underground.
I mean you run it through a rubber sleeve if necessary and get it where it's supposed to go. Everything else is ugly by that point, why not one more thing?
Read above....Cables to thin its not like the mains going to house which are 16mm or 25mm.
But it's not dangerous is it? Why the precautions?
Not dangerous, But it would sag and it may break over time. Especially if a bird or a falling branch hit it.
Glass breaks pretty easily compared to copper.
Oh, it certainly makes a difference at the business level. I was in Dunedin last year, with their 'gigabit' ethernet (both at home an in the office).....really didn't change my life at home (barely noticeable), but the performance with work apps and data was quite different.
I think the "what we have right now is fine" position will be found out very quickly. We need to future proof ourselves and hanging your hat on old copper networks won't cut it in 5 or 10 years.
Whilst I acknowledge that 5g or 6 g or 7g might offer a solution to some, I can't see ISPs providing me with 1tb/m highspeed for $100/m over a wireless network. History suggests that it would be 5 times that.
Also the 5g network can't cope with congestion in peak times like fibre can.
Misgivings about 5g is here for those who think that it is the future over fibre.
