The UK is pretty crap for Internet speeds and bandwidth caps/throttling to be honest. I was very happy with my 8Mbps/0.75Mbps (download/upload) ADSL connection with UK Online until Sky, like any overly-capitalist company would, bought them out and killed them. I moved to Virgin Media's 50Mbps/5Mbps fibre optic service and was plagued with nothing but bandwidth issues, specifically on my upload, killing all possibility of online gaming. Then there's the throttling...

Anyway, long story short, I cancelled before being tied to their crap service and found another holy grail ISP, "BE Broadband". I'm subscribed to their 24Mbps/2.5Mbps ADSL2+ service and I get 16Mbps/2Mbps steady speed all day long with no caps and no throttling. I'm very happy with this but I doubt this is classed as "high end broadband". The UK is very far behind what they should be at, to be honest. All we get is ISPs running the same crap networks selling us PR crap attached to capped/throttled products. Most of these "ISPs" also know nothing of Internet connections - they are just a regular company trying to milk the Internet cow with absolutely no technical knowledge beyond getting you "set up" (so they can start charging you).

"BE Broadband" has so far been one of those amazing ISPs, like UK Online was prior for me. I just hope it lasts. My friend in Japan is dreading moving back to the UK because of Internet connections over here compared to Japan. He currently gets 100Mbps download (not sure on upload but I believe it's 10Mbps), uncapped and unthrottled.
As tech advances speeds will only get faster.

Speeds might get faster. Coverage with those speeds, is far less certain.

its a flop, failure, whatever you would like to label it. Let the thread die in peace.

I would rather go out and buy a console and play on it before onlive. And i will never game on a console.

Give me modding or give me death *****es!

Not to mention bandwidth caps will only get more ridiculous unless theres some major changes...

And speaking of ca coverage, the fastest connection in my area is comcast at 10mb down, and it has a 25gb a month cap...

Look at the bright side.

Time Warner is now getting laws written to kill municipal owned/operated broadband nets that are now popping up...because the private ISPs have trashy service:

Cloud computing is the future for PCs. You say it's a failure, when actually it's just a step into the future of things to come.

I believe in the next ten years overclocking as the hobby we know it today will die. Realistically most people on OCN have faster computers already than they need. Instant on computing will be here in less than 5 years. There will come a point when overclocking isn't noticeable. I can't even tell the difference between 3.3ghz and 4.8ghz unless I run a benchmark.

As for internet speeds just look at Verzion. True 4g was just released; the Thunderbolt is getting 12mb down on a PHONE. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a 5g or 6g in ten years. Who knows how fast it will get.

also, the days of "personal computers" for the masses are numbered... who needs a PC when everything has embedded computers

pc nerds will be near extinct.... OCN will have 1 post per day... but there still be a few hardcore neckbeardy dudes around

I agree that games will most likely meet "streaming" capability in the future. However there are more reasons to own a PC than just "games".

For me, I get very personal with my PC. It has to look and feel how I want it to be; Hardware and Software. I don't think I can live with someone building me a pre-built PC.

I digress, the topic is about Games and it being streamed over a Hi-Speed connection. I see a future in that, but the PC dying is irrelevant.
