Wirelessly?

This will be great for building municipal networks.

Things like the router CPU and NICs involved will have more to do with with network speeds. And cable will depend on how much your nieghbors are using it. DSLs are how far away from the switch box you are.
10/100 NICs have existed for ages.
Any newer/modern consumer router can easily route 30 mbit.

Also, hasn't even been released and you act like you know better.

What's 30Mbs using the metric system?

I love how people don't read the article and then post about how stupid, crappy etc it is.

Yeah and the article is talking about the FCC, which governs US wireless frequencies. The article is about a woman in Texas, also in the US. We're using US INTERNET pricing/speeds etc. as a frame of reference considering this affects nobody outside of the US whatsoever.

Congrats on your cheap Internet though; really, kudos to you.

Most people, you pay $50 for 15-20mbps. We pay $44.99/mo for 17mbps, so we're pretty average. In the countryside you get screwed over paying like $60/mo for 5mbps.
Not even in the countryside, but since ATT only offers internet in my area, max speed is 6mbps for 40 a month.

on topic: thats an insane speed at an insane distance.

People too often mistake 30mbs for the ability to actually move data at 30 megabytes per second. Complaining that a wireless access point is only 15-20mbs when an Internet connection is 30mbs is not justified. You could be hooking up with an old wireless g and that 30mbs is going to work just as well as this new wifi.

And yes this isn't released, but it isn't really new tech...they are expanding upon old tech and will likely follow the same rules as the old tech. So yeah, I am guessing on that point, but I am still certain it is a safe assumption.
