well my entire argument hinges on that price. I mean... there's nothing to talk about. We all agree it would be kick ass. Most of us have our doubts. What will happen will happen anyway and if things happen to be good we'll take advantage of it.

Heh, forgot about this thread.

SR managed to sum up what I was saying quite nicely. I don't really think I have anything to add to that.

You guys are missing the whole point. This IS launching next year. Urban areas first. The new broad band is just around the corner. My point is this could spark a whole new e-conomy again. You do not need the bandwidth now. But you might when it is avaiable.
And you're gonna tell me that EVERY single endevour that is launched is a total success? I don't think so. Sometimes ideas come along that are absolutely fantastic on paper, but seriously lack such things as proper funding, widespread acceptance, adequate demand, or various other factors. I know I'm being pessimistic here, but try and think objectively here. can you honestly see this being widely accepted by the general public in the next five years? I cannot. Last time I checked the cost of fiber was still pretty high, and the logistics of running said fiber to every household would be astronomical. Who is going to pay for this? The end user? Not when they can get cable or dsl for a fraction of the cost while keeping more than adequate functionality.

I just think this sounds far too ambitious a project for it to happen so soon, that's all.

That's what they said about Communism. Just like communism, though, Internet 2 is gonna work out.

I think that whole Giant WiFi for Everyone In The City thing will get more popular.

My like second uncle or something in San Fransisco has some internet, phone, and cable deal where they get 10 megs a second for fiberoptics. They said it was really popular there, and supposedly gonna take off. If so many people there get fiberoptics, I don't see why so many other people couldn't.

I think I2 will mostly just make file sharing easier. We'll get pissed when DVD rips take more than a minute to download. I can't wait to get pissed about something that great.
