Re: Breaking point There are research projects underway that may allow up to 99 more colors of laser light to be used in fiber optic systems. You could increase mainline data transport by 100 times today's capabilities. You have to build bigger laser facilities, but the bulk of the fiber strands already in place could handle the increased load. Very little digging may be required to do this, if it gets out of the R&D phase.
