    "In less than 2 seconds, Lothberg can download a full-length movie on her home computer "

    I don't think a hard drive can process data that fast :eek:

    Bleh. It's jus' a marketing stunt. Your pc can't even keep up with the data flow. It was discussed to death on slashdot a while back.

    true, no costs to do this or how much infrastructure change would be needed is mentioned
    but I would be fine with my PC and hard drive being the bottleneck again instead of the internet

    Basically it's a guy using his mom(or was it grandma) to test a routing technique. She didn't even own a computer beforehand. Anyways, don't look for this anytime soon.

    Best I can tell they are not marketing anything. 10 gagbit ethernet exists so something must be able to handle that transfer rate, this is only :D claiming to be 4 times as fast as that, doesn't seem completely out of the realm possibility.

    Thanks,

    You can have all the Speed you want in an Internet Connection, but there comes a point where it means nothing.

    You will always have bottlenecks. Be it Hard Drive, CPU, Memory etc.

    A 40 GB per Sec Download Speed would be great, if only everything else would work that fast.
