    Verizon FIOS is now field testing 10G by 10G FTTP services to real customer premises.

    You can download a movie in about 4 seconds.

    Who knows when that will actually be available? Co-release nation-wide LTE 4g in 2012?

    My office switched to FioS a couple months ago... as of yet it seems only marginally faster, not sure what their deal is.

    I had FTTH back in Tbilisi (of all places), it's been available there for a year or two now. Downloading a movie and watching the progress bar is just kick ass cool!

    You may not have your tcp send and receive buffers optimized. By default, Windoze doesn't take big enough "bites" to support the kind of speed that FIOS offers.

    Verizon offers an optimization tool at infospeed.verizon.net that will fix you up.

    Would that work to optimize a computer on any network? I don't have service through Verizon.. but my shit is considerably slower than it should be.

    To the OP. That was some cool stuff. Advances like this make me wonder just what sort of things we'll see coming in the future, that utilize this technology.

    Holy shit! That Verizon optimization tool took my download speeds from 15 Mbps to 64 Mbps. I guess the Windows default settings really aren't optimized for fiber!

    Thanks, Chucky!

    I will have to try this optimization tool tonight at home on my wireless fiberoptic network.

    As for the 10G...and here I was getting excited for the 4G/LTE stuff coming in 2011, lol.

    A coworker of mine visited South Korea in Aug. of 2006 and was amazed at the mobile tech they already had. He witnessed lots of video calling, etc., stuff we're only just getting to here in the States.

    In Asia, and parts of Europe, wireless networks are ahead of North America.

    In the U.S., though, where Verizon FIOS is in place, there's no technology that comes close to the speed, reliability, and performance.

    The management at Verizon was smart in understanding that if you own the superior network and take it all the way in, you can do all sorts of things no one else does, you own the pipe, and you remain germane for a long time.

    They know that to bring the network faster, they simply re-clock, and plunge ahead.

    It'll be interesting to see if Verizon stays with the all you can eat model.

    ATT has done a TERRIBLE job with their U-Verse from everyone I've talked to. It just doesn't work right, or works poorly.

    The cable company is in a spot, now, where they likely won't be able to catch up fast enough, and will have to settle for the lower end of the market.

    I have never heard a good thing about ATT U-Verse.
