My brother (who lives in Hong Kong) let slip that his ADSL runs at 100Mb, and he's got the slow option! I didn't believe him, so I looked it up in google and he's not telling a porky...
The 100Mb service costs about 30USD per month. The 1000Mb service is about 200USD a month.
Jesus is coming look busy

i heard about that... still, it is only so good since most servers and FTPs limit download bandwidths. give it 2-3 years and that will be twice as fun to play with.. could be hella fun to run a server(or 10) off of.
Hong kong, here I come...
now that is comming to the point where you computer is slowing down your internet connection:eek: I want some:yum:

anyone know if 8000kb/s is Availible in australia, cause some little 12 says his rich school has it through a fibre optic link direct to the ISP
My uni had a direct link to an OC/12 SONET when I was there. Schools get perks that people don't. It's a nice notion, but Hong Kong is the exception to the rule. 100Mbps is all good and well, but wholly unpractical outside of a city core (which is all Hong Kong is). So it works well for them, but most of the rest of us are just SOL and have to muddle by with ADSL2/2+ and technologies like Fios (and a mere 10-15Mbps, though at least that will be a wholly dedicated pipe, which I suspect--but can't confirm--isn't entirely the case in Hong Kong).
It's going to be years before Britain has high speed broadband as we're still using copper phonelines all over the place, and they strain at 4MB/sec :(
