<br />

</div>That's actually a combination of Web 2.0 and Fiber Optic internet Lines. Gigabit internet, not just ethernet... Think of it as:<br />
<b>17800 Times faster than 56k<br />
666 Times faster than HDSL 1.5Mbps <img src="/images/smilies/devil.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Devil" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
Downloading at 125 MegaBYTES per second</b><img src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" border="0" alt="" title="EEK!" class="inlineimg" />

As far as I have heard (pop sci) it will simply be EXTREME bandwidth. As much as your router can handle. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> Also I heard it was basically just for bill gates and top of the line medical research facilities to use to send BIG chunks of data. probably not going to be available to us commoners.

Isn't web 2.0 the concept of streaming media that everyone can create and have access to? Not just more flashy crap?

There's already supposedly an "Internet 2.0" in activation. It seems to be just a network between state campus' around the U.S. with an increased amount of bandwidth. That's from what I read maybe a year ago. Sorry, no source.<br />
<br />
The other "Web 2.0" I have heard of is actually a term Bill O'Reilly? has coined for the new fancier websites. Everything seems to be all tricked out with gloss and plenty of Flash elements. Head on over to <a href="http://www.pcworld.com" target="_blank">PCWorld.com</a> and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.<br />
<br />
In response to there supposedly being increased bandwidth, I don't see how. You're connection relies on your ISP. If you want increased bandwidth, go ahead and buy yourself a T3 line and you can call it "Web whatever."<br />

Anyways...I've seen stories about 3D websites...and I know it was mentioned before..but the only ones I've heard of...were, in fact "pornographic" websites.....where you wear your little glasses and stuff sticks out at you...lol.<br />

Yeah, my dad tonight was talking about this thing called lag, it sounds really horrible, like the internet couldn't handle enough data to keep games going smoothly, how could the internet not handle games back then, I mean it can handle our 1000 vs 1000 battles on Battlefield 29.
