I'm already in RAID 0. 2x1.5TB HDDs. It's software RAID, thou Oh well.

No, they did dig and lay fiber in Kansas City. I haven't seen any plans to expand outside of KC.

Right now Hanover Heights is going online.

You don't think its called "fiber to the home" for a reason?

And I was just going off of the terminology presented on their website. Don't take my word for it, check it out yourself.

Niice.

Too bad on the hard drives though. If its a gigabit box then you're really only missing out on 10mbs though, so not much.

this is all confusing because when new tract home developments sprout up, it's up to the home owners association (or whoever the ****) if they want to pay extra to install fiber optic lines. So I'm not quite sure how Google will reach homes in the hills and what have you.

What's a "hill" ???

The area which Google has selected to hook up first is oldtown. There are no new developments there. Alot of the houses are easily 80 years old. My friend's house is like 110 or something.

Yeah, I'm not complaining. The bittorrent protocol is great for stress testing because you are not limited by a single server.



I just can't believe yousharenow would say some retarded sheit like that. I'm using a "consumer" grade on board NIC and haven't had any problems. I have no idea where he's getting his data from.

Sounds like a company like Greenfield Communications.

http://www.egreenfield.com/

They lay fiber for communities and then charge their services through the HOA.

I don't like them, IMO.

I don't like anything related to HOA, it's just an excuse for some Honda driving fgot who likes to play golf to act like the big swinging dick in the community.

I would have to agree with you. That clown tried to tell me that micowave was better than fiber and I just facepalm'd so hard. I had a heated discussion with him awhile ago.

Now that I look back, I was just feeding him.

Shame on me.
