30mbps up? /Riplin shakes his head

While it's possible that for you 30Mbps up may not be that useful once people discover what they can do with it it actually gets used and people appreciate it.

How about being able to watch your TV from anywhere with a Slingbox? You can do that now but with 30Mbps up you can provide a beautiful 8Mbps HD stream. It really does look nice.

Cloud backups are a popular thing these days. They are excruciating on other internet service but with 30Mbps up? Much better. They don't become a burden on your internet connection, they just work in the background as they should.

Something as simple as emailing with attachments. That's instant now.

The 30Mbps up is also popular with photographers who want to put photos up online for customers to see.

As a country most of us don't use upload based services or think about what we can do because we *can't*. FibreOP opens the door to that. Personally my opinion is that upload will become ever more important going forward.
