CNN Money: Huge breakthrough in blazing fast internet speeds

Huge breakthrough in blazing fast internet speeds

How would you like Google Fiber-like internet speeds delivered over your home phone line? That's the promise of G.Fast.

Consumer Affairs: Old, slow telephone lines may soon be a lot faster

Old, slow telephone lines may soon be a lot faster

For ultra-fast Internet, you need fiber, right? Wrong, say promoters of a technology called G.Fast, which is creating quite a bit of buzz at the Consumer Electronics Show this year. G.Fast produces Google Fiber-like speeds over plain old copper telephone lines. Think of it as DSL on steroids. It's actually been around awhile but has not been widely deployed, a situation that appears to be about to change. Among those displaying G.Fast applications at the CES is Israeli chipmaker Sckipio, which staged a demonstration showing download speeds of nearly 750 megabits per second on a standard phone line using one of its modems. Chances are that's about 50 times faster than the broadband you have coming into your home via fiber or coax.

OSP Magazine: No More Baby Steps!

No More Baby Steps!

As Bob Dylan sang, “The times they are a-changin’.” What has constituted a definition for broadband for some 15 years now has been a series of Mother-may-I steps from tens of kilobits/second speeds (aka dialup) to xDSL technologies where speeds moved to megabits and then tens of megabits per second, eventually achieving a thousandfold speed improvement.
