Name the song Mum!

The problem with fiber is that it is only as fast as your slowest link. If your pccard or router isn;t gig, it wont be any faster.

eee...Wish I could ID it. I used a music ID app that usually works great, but no matches.

G-Fiber is available in parts of Kansas City, but as of yet I have not talked to anyone who uses it.

eee - Yeah. And, when things are bogged down, the slowest links usually are .com sites based on the lower left coast or upper east coast. I have a .ro link I check frequently, and it is never bogged down. I don't know how .ro is routed, but it's certainly not through the bogged down trunks. AoSHQ seems never to be bogged down either, and it is .nu. Having a super fast local connection is good for local traffic, and that's about it.

All I got from the New Bossa Nova High Speed Interwebs thingy is that it will break my computer, it's so fast.
