Well, that might perhaps be close enough bandwidth for a full immersible VR...

While I was trying to figure out what I would to with 9.5 trillion dollars, I came across this almost 2 year old article. They already have fiber optics that can push 255tbps down 1 kilometer (just short of a mile).

The first thought was "I want that networked in my city to the doorstep," Would I be crazy to want this? Or would I thinking ahead?




Well, sounds nice and all, but quite pointless. Why? Because you'd have a massive bottleneck called "the rest of the internet" that doesn't have that speed capability, so even if you had fiber optic in your city to your front door, unless the entire internet was on that system, and they all had the capability of utilizing such speeds, you'd just get the speed you've been getting now. :3

It's why we currently don't have much in the way of ultra high-speed internet, because it's so cost and time prohibitive for -everybody- to upgrade everything. So sad, too. GOOGLE FIBER, WHY YOU SO SLOW?

Build it and they will come. Establish it and all will follow. If you can have 255 terabits per second to all within the network, soon everyone will require 255 terabits per second to all on the network. Do not give 'choice'. Do not allow 'options'. Dominate. Control. Overrun the opposition. Destroy the competition. Create the new order, the New Standard.
