Gigabit web streaming in 2016? Live tests say yes


What about muh upstream?

Ok, 1Gbps from the modem to the CMTS, then what? 10Gbps infrastructure is still pricey, and 100Gbps switches and fiber backhaul modules are still astronomically expensive. If the cabelcos start playing ball and allow more content caching at their head ends this might actually be useful, but other than that it's more marketing then practical application.
