Default Fiber Internet

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/7202396.stm

Anyone live in any of these towns? It says speeds up to 100 Mbps...that's pretty quick. 12.5 MBps. You could download a full CD in a few seconds. A movie in a minute. Crysis in 8 minutes.

Obviously that's theoretical bandwidth and the actual max speeds wouldn't be that fast...but wow...

i have 750kb download speed . 25kb torrent speed. i duno why mine are allways so slow. they make no sence because Ubuntu has like 1000 seeders at the moment and not many leachers and i get like 10kbs .
then i download a app with heaps of leacers and like 5 seeders and get 180 kbps .
