Re: peter lothberg's mother slashdotted
You say 30 years ago, and lets roughly estimate it's four to five years between those technologies above, which gets us to today. It's going to take at least another 5 years to consider FTTP "the norm" at say 30M, maybe sooner with technologies with DOCSIS 2.0, etc. So...
30M Is Today +4/5 years 300M Is Today +8/10 years 3G Is Today +12/15 years 30G Is Today +16/20 years
If it's sooner all the better. Keeping in mind, installations like Verizon FiOS don't run dedicated strands of glass to each home, they use PON. So achieving anywhere near 40G on even the existing stuff they're running into homes may not be possible for quite some time...
PS -- baud != bps
