What are you on about. The reason behind crap speeds and throttling bandwidth is due to the "last mile" ie the distance between the main network to your home (ie the phone exchange to your house). You are throttled because that line between your house and the exchange as many other people on as well, and thus you all need a equal share.

The upgrading the last mile to high capacity fiber optics is what is needed so these caps go away. The reason why it isnt done you ask, cost. It will cost a hell of a alot to upgrade it all, and it will be very hard for the companies to recoup that cost. Technology is not the problem. Its the cost of it.

In the UK, the reason why we have such rubbish internet is in the 70s and 80s BT decided to save some money by using aluminum (instead of copper which is a little more reliable, but still not optic. ) phone lines all across the country.

They're cheap, but awful.

Anyway, good job Intel, maybe there will be a use for them that will benefit us, the general consumer some time in the next five ten years.

Go Intel! Surprised Intel is making them, you'd think a networking focused company would have created this.
