I'm actually just making fun of things Verizon has said in the past.
I just changed the speeds and the company name. I just couldn't help but think of their thoughts on "fast speeds" when they weren't providing the top speeds vs this experiment.
It's a combination of impractical (at the moment, though I could definitely see speeds approaching 1 Gbps over the next few years) and cool in a nerdy way. I'm all for innovation for faster connections. I know how FTTH technology works.
