    Hong Kong Broadband Network has launched a new ultra fast service. The symmetric 1Gbps service costs approximately £112 per month, but obliterates the kind of speeds we are used to in the UK. We are eagerly waiting for the rollout of an 8Mbps service and consider that to be fast.

    While this kind of speed is unlikely to be available in the UK for some time, the possibilities for its use are immense. Large publishers could offer direct download services for their games, online gaming could be revolutionised and TV channels could be streamed at MPEG-2 DVD quality. It is hard to actually imagine speeds reaching 1Gbps in the UK, but we can dream.

    Can think u what u could do w/ that type of speed? I know the MPAA and RIAA would sh*t themselves. lol Japan has it good.

    Yeah I heard about the 1Gbps service like a week ago, as for 8mb in the UK where abouts are you located cos 8mb is nearly everywhere UK Online give great speeds at great prices too check em' out. http://www.ukonline.net :) and anyay with 1Gbps connection speed you pretty much got the net on your hdd lol, and most sites have capped downloads. The higher the speeds go the more limits servers impose. :(
