If it's nothing less than, say, 25+ Mbps d/l rates at no extra cost, I'll be disappointed.

I believe they're the only ones that can do that if they want to.

This press release needs the words "Nuff Said," "True Believers" and "excellent jumping on point for new..." in order to really grasp the attention of this crowd.

For a couple of years, I lived just outside of RTP, but it's mostly an industrial area so there's not a lot of residential areas in the Park itself.

You better share that statement with the rest of the board, because often times stating the truth is synonymous with hate around here. :)

No, that would simply break the internet in half

EDIT: As apparently a couple of other people have noted


he Cisco CRS-3 triples the capacity of its predecessor, the Cisco CRS-1 Carrier Routing System, with up to 322 Terabits per second, which enables the entire printed collection of the Library of Congress to be downloaded in just over one second
Holy mother... that's just rediculous

But is it really a notable improvement over the ability to download the entire printed collection of the library of congress in 3 seconds?

When is it fast enough?

Not quite as amazing as they hyped it, but that's still pretty damned impressive.

My job is directly tied to Cisco, and believe you me this will be bought and Cisco will be making ridiculous profits from its SmartNet service contracts that will stem from it. Not sure how much will be changed from it, but if this product delivers as promised the company will be swimming in money.
