Internet remake needed

Lot more to come ahead -

Today, copper wire brings broadband Internet access to 10 million American homes, says research project director Hui Zhang, who leads the collaboration from Carnegie Mellon University. The researchers envision a new fiberoptic network reaching 100 million American households within the next few years. Mr. McKeown says data could enter or leave homes at 100 megabits per second -- about 2,000 times faster than dial-up Internet access and about 100 times faster than DSL. Over this next-generation network, file size would no longer limit what can be sent over the Internet, removing a major roadblock to delivery of high-definition video on demand.
