That’s right. We can all be saying that.
At least, in a report provided by Australian Computer Society President, Philip Argy.
Philip seems to have learnt too much from the previous saying that 640k would be all we ever need (and now we all start in the 1-2GB range, and well, he seems to take that a step too far, and let’s just future proof us all, 30Gbps to my home, sweet.
Basically the report states that it would give Australia what it needs to be a leader, compared to a follower.
Here’s the Australian IT link for those who might be interested in 30Gbps Internet Connections (you’d be insane not to be):
Looking at that, we can see that it’s a far leap from what I currently use, labelled Telstra Wholesale Fraudband, bought to me by Netspace Online Systems.
I think he is seriously looking too far ahead, I mean, it’s 10 years away, and I am sure, that we honestly would find it highly difficult to come near maxing, or utilising the full potential of a 30Gbps Internet Connection (but I still will take a few anyway, I wanna give Southern Cross Cables and PIPE networks a run for their money, and go fishing and eat fish without cooking it, the heat from the cables should do that for me).
I don’t mind being a follower, being on the leading edge of technology means you get to poke tounges at the rest of the planet when they have a measily 10Gbps connection, and your fragging their asses, and leeching their torrents, and carrying half the countries phone calls, and still have bandwidth to spare on your 30Gbps internet connection, but seriously, I think we are a long stretch from using that, and being on the leading edge of technology isn’t without a set back:
You roll out billions of dollars in technology, and you start retailing it at a fair rate, and all of a sudden, you find flaws in the technology.
Let’s not forget how hot Intel Prescott CPUs get. Or the other developmental failures.
So, there’s no real point sitting at the front of technology, you do, you spend your dollars, its outdated next week anyway.
You sit back, and wait for price change, and you see the technology highs, and those highs occur in certain product ranges at differing intervals, that’s when you jump in, get a stable setup, and walk out and go back to watching again.
I still want to laugh at those that paid $600+ for an XBOX. Bahaha. Stupidity. Sit back, and all of a sudden, they are stocked, the idiots that spent $600+ have found the bugs, they’ve figured them out, Version 3 comes out, and what do you know, probably one of the best times to buy with price and bug fixes.
So, I don’t really want a 30Gbps Internet Connection right now.
I don’t want a 1Gbps Internet Connection right now.
I want a 100Mbps internet connection within the next few years.
I want a 24Mbps Internet connection – right now.
In staggering the updates over technology, you can see the peaks, the highs, the times to buy in and invest.
For example, UDSL is another flavour, among the many DSL flavours, why wouldn’t we investigate UDSL ? Probably because the technology isn’t right for us. However, VDSL2 or DOCSIS3 are proven technologies (and have shown their flaws), rolling it out, and creating content industries within Australia (bring on IPTV), we’d see some mass demand for both the connections, and the content, thus advancing us technologically.
We do need to move up with the times, and of course, with Telstra in a monopoly position on the copper network, it isn’t going to happen, so move that monopoly position, and let’s see what happens. I predict we’d start having 100Mbps or higher speeds within the 12 year monopoly the G9 want to have over the infrastructure, and that’d just be the start of what could be a OECD changing network.
We shouldn’t aim for 1, we should aim for a position at 3 – 10. They aren’t going to find flaws in technology, and instead will be watching the rest of the world make moves on technology, and calculate the correct investments for Australia.
That’s what SHOULD happen. In fact, ADSL2+ wasn’t too far off ADSL. I’d be curious as to why they even stopped at ADSL. We could of leaped right into ADSL2+ easily.
Catch yas all on the information super dooper, high in fibre highway.
