its like 5 times faster than the fastest internet connection here in canada so i think it will be damn enough for a while. 100mbps means an average download rate of ~12,500Ko/sec, so ...

Whoa that's so awesome! 30-40 or 60 MB/s? Lol SWEET! I have an 8 Mb/s now and I still feel like thats slow haha but I'm extremely impatient

You have 8Mb/s not 8MB/s. 8Mb/s=1MB/s 100Mb/s=12.5MB/s

America's standard for High-Speed is 7 times lower than most countries. Also 30 percent of American's are still forced to rely on Dial-up. F* 100mbps, I'll be more impressed when we get 100% broadband penetration in this country.
