Default Re: japan gets 1.6Gb/s

I don't doubt it..You know what really boggles me is the Asian countries.

Just the other night I was watching "Build it BIG"...Well you can probly guess what country was picked. Mainland China.

Long story short, The Airport they had wasn't realistic. Planes fly over houses every 4 minutes just feet above and the country was growing at mind blowing rates. It went from 500,000 to Milllions of Millions.

So these guys were like, We have no more land to build on..Well...Solutions??...... Lets blow up mountains and coastal hills and build us some more land on the ocean. And they did, They built an Airport 6 million square meters in total over the Ocean. Wow.

Haha

Consumer Ethernet grade fiber is single stand typically, and "ISP grade" fiber is 12 strands a ribbon. Here's a comparison pic I took.

Wow I was way off. I don't know much about it but I thought it was supposed to be really really small so that's why I said thousands.

Lol. China and India are pretty crazy. Between them I think 2.2 billion people. About a third of the world's population.

Yeah, the ISP grade fiber is only about 20FT and not viable for use, hence why I have it.

They are extremely small, they just need to be insulated.

That's so worth it IMO. @ my street everybody has COX so I get really slow connection. At midnight it gets a little better lol. I hate this. I would definitely pay $20 for a dedicated line.

Damn. Every channel? That's nice dude. Well, since they pay that already might as well add 20 and go for everything top of the line lol.
