128 megabytes, but yea. Also, it's not different measures for internet/computers...it's just...a different measurement. Like inches and centimeters.
Sata II drives write anywhere from like 15-75mb , which is a complete guestimated ballpark. Whereas SSDs of course can get 100-500.

I know bel has had some massive hiring campaign and is currently doing fiber in SOME area (I don't know which). Sooner or later everyone will move from copper to fiber.
The thing with Bel right now is they don't have the hardware to go insane speed, but they're already investing in fiber lines and every new client in the specific areas are getting their fiber lines done.

It's not overkill for streaming blue-ray quality videos, or downloading them.
same with some games that are 20 GBs or more.
Also, more importantly, latency could be drastically reduced.
I get so mad everytime I read about this. I got everyone I know to sign the petition to bring google fiber to KC a few years ago. And then right after I move away they choose KC to pilot it
I know why they chose KC tho, there is literally ZERO competition for internet in KC. Time warner is the only tv and internet provider in the majority of the city.
Don't they already have fiber-optic internet companies? I was looking at one in my area and I don't believe speeds even remotely reached what you were mentioning. I guess just advances within it?

Wait, what? You Americans are actually astonished by 1000? We've had it here for over a year, and I know a neighbouring city who had it around 2-3 years ago (experimental stages though, so only those that lived in appartments owned by a certain company could get it). It's expensive though so I'm more than pleased with my 100/100. And there's no cap on how much you can download/upload.
Also worth mentioning that I live in the northern parts of Sweden.

Nope. You're thinking inside the box.
You need to understand and consider how things evolve and change.
Nothing is truly instant on the internet, and until it is.. we'll keep advancing towards it.
Unless ofcourse Google have some hidden agenda where they plan on using peoples computers without them knowing and they need the bandwidth
