You could have a 100GB connection but the fact remains, you can only download as fast as the place that is uploading.. As for peer 2 peer it would be useful.

Why would the FCC impose metered/restricted bandwith--and when have they done this for other ISP's? The ISP's have decided to impose speed and bandwidth limitations as a method of generating more revenue--it has nothing to do with anything the FCC is currently practicing.
I can't wait for more smaller provider options to help improve competition and help force down prices and improve services. I'm not at all unhappy with the ISP we have at home other than I feel it costs more than it should. We have a 16/1 (yes, 1 up) and it's something like $40/month. I've been using cloud backup more and more frequently, so I'm really dreading the 1 up at the moment, but it's not that big of a deal. More down...well, if I downloaded more games on steam I might care about that, but 16 down is plenty for the things we do at home.
I live just outside of SF--wonder how widespread this service will be.

Please don't take this as some sort of attack or criticism, but I think the above statement shows that a lot of people are missing an important point of this. It's not as much to give the user more speed that they otherwise don't have access to or can't use (I'll admit--even a 100mbit connection is overkill for most servers' upload speeds)--the important aspect of this is that it's a huge bump in competitive services from "new" providers--the more of these that are offered, the more people will not hesitate to jump ship on the giant providers that have a stranglehold on most consumers. That's where the power of this service comes in--not in the sheer bandwidth or speeds that they can supply.

The town collectively got together for permits to install their own infrastructure and within two weeks the very same ISP started to lay fiber. I wish I could remember where this was at and I promise you I'm not lying.

I don't know if this is the one you're specifically talking about but Wilson, NC did this. Time Warner refused to bring them Internet service (of any kind) so the town started their own subsidized ISP. 20/20 fiber connection to every resident, included in your city taxes.

The result? Time Warner sued them. Seriously. "We can't bring them service but they shouldn't be able to compete with us!". Case got thrown out, and Time Warner then began laying lines all around Wilson because (I believe) Wilson refused to give them the permits to build in their city.

Im from sydney and i get 35Mbps on bigpond cable , friend of mine is with optus and he has the supersonic plan and gets 100+Mbps

Speeds are fine , i have seen over 100Mbps speedtest results from guys in melbourne on the whirlpool forum .. so i dont know what the problem is . Maybe your area has old lines or need upgrading .
