I wish we had this in Australia. Fiber has just started rolling out in a (very) limited number of areas, however it's not good value at all at present (30GB a month is about $50 AUD - with fiber speeds, one could use that in a day! 1TB plans are around $140 AUD, and that's on the slower "bronze" option (12/1 Mbps)).

I've seen Windows NT still in use in a few areas of our government. :s

Are there any data caps, is the speed symmetrical, what is the guaranteed speed at any given time, if there is such a clause at all?

Also, what kind of hardware is used/needed for the computer?

Don't you need something like a 10gig base t card to even get the speed from your equipment?

Its a gimmick for now. They're using G-EPON. That's 2.5Gbps shared between at the very least 8 homes and most likely 16/32.
