Give me back my 150 baud USB modem please.Japanese engineers achieve a record-breaking internet speed of 319 Tb/s, that was carried for over 3,000 kilometers.

Just get XFi Complete. I paid $10 more per month compared to my old contract, and there's no data cap.I can see Comcast salivating now. Think of all the over data limit fees!
Oh, I know it! I called the company and asked if there was anything with more than 20Mbps upstream. There isn't for my area, at least not yet. Maybe in the next couple of years we'll get fibre. (#fingerscrossed) Actually, our city is looking into municipal internet. I know two neighboring citiese have it, and one of them (where my sister-in-law lives) can do 1Gbps up/down even without fibre. Well, I don't know if it can actually do 1Gbps up, but on WiFi over there I got over 250Mbps up, which is more than enough for my purposes.which is a joke.
its ridiculous that thats as good as US upload gets outside fiber.
the world is advanced to point where upload IS used more than in past.
And fiber optic 'fibers' may indeed be hollow tubes.read your reference. the fibers may be inside tubes: "These cables are composed of several fibers together inside a small plastic tube, "
Tubes are hollow fibers are solid.
A better option would be to build a time machine and stop the thousands of local and national politicians from selling out the consumers (aka The People) and allowing competition and the free market to flourish. Any town/city is luck if they have more than 2 choices -Comcast or AT&T. And most don't have that.Just get XFi Complete. I paid $10 more per month compared to my old contract, and there's no data cap.
Except then I moved to a new state, switched to the new local ISP, and got gigabit down, 20Mbps up, plus mesh routers ... all for $10 per month less than I was paying Comcast for 400Mbps down/12Mbps up.
In other words, Comcast sucked, but at least there's a way to get rid of the data cap without paying a huge fee.
