Comments on news posted 2004-09-03 09:22:35: The next generation Internet2 network has once again broken a data transmission speed record, according to PhysOrg. Scientists transferred 859 gigabytes of data in less than 17 minutes at a rate of 6. ..
why would i need 6.63 Gigabits per Second my 4.8mbps is just as good pages would load @ the same time as the 6.63Gbps. it would bacuse the Server dose not have the same speed as the 6.63Gbps speed so it would take the server 6.63 gbps too for it to load faster
They did transfer 10GB/s but the overhead of IP does not allow one to utilized the full 10GB/s for user data. The limitations are the end-machines adapters and not Internet2 backbone.
Next, it does effect you indirectly since the traffic utilitzed by the Internet2 community is not being use on the regular Internet. So all those students and professors on-campus are transferring data without effecting our bandwidth depending on the particular institution's policy for their Internet2 traffic. I see the cable traffic pattern change in my area when the off-campus students arrive for school.

Reminds me of the standard response to the late 1980's question "What is the fastest way to move 500MB data overnight between San Jose and San Francisco". Answer "Fedex". -- I support the right to keep and arm bears.

Gates NEVER said this.
Your statement is in caps and it sounds very interesting indeed because it goes against mainstream lore. Can you actually prove this?
Please note that I'm not asking Jon Geb : to prove his.

nick it's really bugging me when you do this, those icons/smilies don't show up to anyone who doesn't go to seriouszone.com. For us it shows up as a little anti-leeching image. -- Power corrupts. Absolute power is kinda neat.
I wonder who's line they used. They obviously didnt lay 1 cable between switzerland and california...
so if they used exisiting infrastructure, minus the their own routers [10 GbE server adapter, Cisco 7600 Series Routers] why cant the normal joe get this kind of bandwidth? -- Alaskas Article 1, section 22 puts it succinctly: The right of the people to privacy is recognized and shall not be infringed.
It's on the Internet2 Lines, I think they're provided by the "Abilene" network... www.internet2.edu. I'm on I2 right now, but for some reason I only get 70 or so MB/s to I2, and only about 50 MB/s to I1. Oh well.
The general public will never get this type of net speed to there house. This type of connection speed is meant to be used for the backbone providers.
Also, the equipment costs are very high. Most likely you will get another 3 MBs D/L. The big telcos and cable companies with open the upstream speeds in the coming months. Don't think its going too be a big move. Most likely in the next 18 months you will see speeds around 9-10 mbps download and 700K-1 mbps upstream.

I'm really disgusted with the speed racing thing. It's nice that "scientists" are pushing the envelope, however, there is the real application of science to the real world that interests "me" the end user.
Take for instance the 1960'ish world fair. Where we had flying cars and all that crazy stuff. Yes, it gave hope to a generation of hopefulls and dreamers, but it didn't really apply to practical applications at the time.
Wouldn't it be wonderful to have an actual "dream arena" where the wonders of the creators were on the verge of becoming a reality and the visitors were contributors of the dream!!
Yeh, but the bandwidth hogs only used it for 17 minutes, haha. Also, the chances of this data being moved to a physical storage device like a hard drive is slim, I would assume some sort of fast solid state device. On the other hand, who is to say the data was even saved after being transferred? Toss it in memory and delete it immediately... it was transferred! -- Do you worry me? I do.
Man that looks more like a plane to me though it says sky car, if I saw one of those flying in the air I'd be like aliens!!! I'm talking a car with wings, like my old 1996 blue Corsica. -- Maaaannn you wanna come in the garage and see my merchandise?
I wondered what kind of a file they transferred that was so big, so just to make the picture clearer I came up with some numbers. The amount of data they transferred was +/- equal to: -343,600 MP3s -214 DVD movies -1321.5 DiVX single CDR movies -11,453,333 pr0n pictures at an avg. size of 75kb
Yeah it's like putting the exact distance to the moon on August 10th... we'd rather know it's simply very far and may not really see what it's like until we're 20 years older. -- Ever met someone from Microsoft Q/A? ...EXACTLY!
