Organize the world's information and make it universally accessible.
I think it's fantastic that any company is trying to force the US' archaic net infrastructure to evolve.
A few possible uses for 100+ megs/second:
- Streaming of real HD without significant compression (sorry blu ray).
- Streaming of the much higher resolutions that will follow HD.
- Whole families making full use of the internet at the same time without lag.
- Wireless access points capable of handling a large number of users from any home or business connection.
- File sharing.
- Low latency web surfing. Even if you don't max out your bandwidth you still benefit from low transit times on small amounts of data.
- High resolution video/voice communication.
- Host your own web server, one that can handle a significant amount of traffic. Assuming of course there is a comparable jump in upload bandwidth to go along with download.
And don't forget that this will bring down the price of bandwidth at all providers.
