Whatever next lol, bet it will come at a price lol
Or... You can't get BT infinity at the moment sir, but if you move to use we will provide you with a faster ADSL connection than your current provider!!
Me: But I haven't told you who my current provider is!
BT: Doesn't matter sir the connection will still be better!
Yeah, right better meaning £10 a month more than my current provider!
Come on BT your sales advisors are completely ripping the proverbial, how about being honest straight forward and above all accurate that would be a good start for customers looking to give you business!
So what applications would I put a 320Mbps service to? I guess I'd need wired Gig Ethernet to get it past the router. Would WiFi cut that kind of throughput (even dual band)? And presumably Homeplug is a non-starter for all practical purposes.
So maybe some app on a direct wired and fast PC? And I could download stuff 'even quicker' (assuming the 'other end' could offer me similar throughput, of course).
The application ideas for this internet speed for the home seem still to emerge, or have i missed something? Only P2P file sharing comes to mind, where I could, in effect, aggregate and simiultaneoulsly staturate more slower speed sources for my download. I'm sure the applications will come, but it does seem all a bit of 'willy waving' for the meantime... and basically mean file leachers can get their stuff more quickly...
As far as I'm aware, the current platform does now support fibre and copper multicast, however I'm not aware that BT have productised thiis in any way at the moment
Ok, so I'd have to migrate to 802.11ac for devices that need to exploit this (unless I want wires)
A 4K/8K TV could maybe be wired over Gig E anyway.
So as a companion for 4K/8K TV in the future, this makes sense.
For punters in the meantime, £50 a month willy waving down the pub 😉
