In other news… prepare to say hello to a whole, new internet… (speed barrier threshold)

The BBC today reports that Deutch Telekom (you know them as the owners of T-Mobile), in conjunction with Alcatel Lucent (you know them as formerly AT&T) have successfully breached the 400Gbps barrier; 512Gbps total, with everything over 400Gbps used for error correction. As the article conveys, that’s equivalent to sending 77 CDs over the line in a second:

Questions that occur here are as follows:

How long before this becomes marketable?

How long before the industry will allow this to come to market? (You know what I mean!)

How long until (or will) the threat of that “higher speed, privatized internet” so oft threatened becomes reality?

Interesting times, indeed.
