2.5Gbps Broadband



First, I would like to introduce myself to everyone. I am a new contributor here at GNC and I probably won’t be posting once a day, but I will post as I have some spare time and I find things that are interesting to me and I think will be interesting to you. My name is Andrew and I’m a 22 year old recent college graduate from South Carolina. Should you ever need to contact me you can email me at andy@ajcannon.com. Now, on to the story…

Imagine for a minute that you had the chance to have a 2.5Gbps broadband connection at your house. I would do almost anything for a connection like that and I’m sure that many of you would do the same. For some people in Paris, France they don’t have to try to imagine it – they can get it. A 2.5Gbps download speed, 1.2Gbps upload speed, and digital TV and unlimited telephone all for the equivalant of $88 (USD) per month. I wish that the US would catch up to some of the other countries in terms of broadband speeds. http://www.infoworld.com/article/06/07/26/HNparishighspeed_1.html

  1. Quite honestly, I couldn’t care less if they included the TV at that price or not. If I’ve got a 2.5Gbps connection to the internet then I can find enough vidcasts to watch without standard television. But I see what you’re saying.
    Thanks for the comment. Have a great weekend.

  2. YEAH! bring it to US, I doubt it will be a package like in France though, France does not have 999 tv channels like the US and at that price there would not be enough for them all.
