Google Fiber sounds great. Not sure it's the same as copying to a NAS drive. I mean, isn't gigabit = gigabyte / 8?
I just looked this up and found that contrary to what I thought current ethernet speeds are rated as gigabit. So you're right, I'm wrong and most likely served :P.
I'll sit down and shut up now :).
No, it's gigabit / 8= gigabyte
I put this before i saw you reply haha sorry.
Haha. It's cool. I've learned an important lesson today :P.
It's the other way around, there are 8 bits in a byte. So it'd be 8 x gigabits = gigabyte, or gigabit = gigabyte/8.
Anything that says bit you have to divide by 8. 8 bits = 1 byte. for 1000Mbps would turn out to be 125Mega Bytes per second.
That's what I thought. But I also thought that ethernet was rated as bite, not bit too. I think that's where I went wrong. Thanks for the heads up though, guys :).
Wonder whats going to happen to all the other Telecom companies once Google Fiber spreads. They would have to upgrade or they would go under.
Well, even if they do upgrade they will still suck compared to Google. They will try to censor the internet. I really do not trust any of them.
Censoring Google, China style.
The speed isn't what's amusing me most, it's their will to let customers have their freedom.There Google will win.
Not that I am affected in that sort of way over here.
The fastest throughput speed I've ever seen with my ISP (SkyBeam) was 120kbps short of 1Mbps. I sure hope Google gains momentum with expanding it's Fiber service soon.
Gabe Newell is on another level, apparently.
funny thing is a city in NC started thier own isp with phone, cable and internet ane they forned it as a co-op. then time warner sued them to get it shut down
if anyone can find that it mite show why google has had to take so long in rolling this out
Australia's rolling out a national fiber-optic broadband service. It's going to take a few years and cost $55billion but I think it's worth it. About the only good thing our government has done.
Keep up the good work!
Damn it, I miss working with you, you viking bearded crazy genius man of the internet
