[MaxPC] Verizon Planning 100 Gigabit Network Upgrade in Select U.S. Cities - Page 3

post #21 of 51
These threads make me want to cry.
Im barely getting 1.5 mbps down (160 KB) and only like 30 KB up.

WHAT IS THIS ****?! Even the most expensive package only gives me 32 mbps.
I ******* hate AT&T, and I hate being this behind other countries when it comes to internet speeds. It makes me want to move.

Sure, spend thousands of dollars moving, so you can pay more for faster internet. And in a country where your dollar means much less.

Not really

This is for network backhauls (pipes) for everyone using the fios service i assume.

Finally! Not a step backward!

I live in a apartment complex and all we have is comcast or verizon's dsl service available.
FIOS is across the street from the apartment complex where I am. I talked to a local rep and I was pretty much told that till the owner allows them they can't have FIOS installed and I would rather have slower uncapped DSL than comcasts bad customer support and data caps.

Wow. I wonder if school districts will get on board with this kind of infrastructure? (If they need it)

Schools do need fat pipes. Online learning, video content, e-schools, etc. are huge upward trends in education. Imagine the load of several hundred kids in a school all trying to access educational video content at once...that's a lot of bits being pushed around.

Fire the teachers and bring us better internet and computers. Seriously. The internet is full of educational material and allows students to choose their own material, videos, text, graphics, and audio books. Teachers should only be there as a moderator to the students, to promote open discussions and to assist the ones who need one on one help.

In all of my schools and classes we rarely ever used online resources in class. The majority of our computer use was typing up essays and other documents or researching one assignment. Like researching an author, then we never got to touch the internet again for the rest of the class.
You can forget educational video content, we were still using a vcr and tv even though our county is in the top 25 wealthiest in the US. Our education system is ridiculous. /off topic rant
