    thats pretty cool, now all that we will have to wait for is labour to bloody tax it and come up with some BS about how it contributes to climate change.

    Hmmm, ultra fast and modern cabling through our ultra fast and modern sewage system :dry

    There was a traffic report on the local news only this morning about a road closure due to a collapsed sewer - would that slow the signal down?

    That seems pretty sweet. They could do that in the Detroit area, but it'd get stolen as while they were installing it.

    i wish we had something like this in the states. i was just talking about it yesterday with some co-workers about how the states average broadband is something like 5 meg and its somewhere near 33% of our nation doesn't have a computer still. oh well, here is to hoping we get something like japan, they've got what 60 meg average speeds?
