Cheap Bandwidth....Major Pipe Costs Plunging

Wired News claims that the fiber glut hasn't gone anywhere, only 11% of fiber linking major cities in the US and Europe has been lit, and the cost of bandwidth on long-distance routes has fallen by more than 90 percent in 4 years.

DSLreports.com reported that the average price companies pay for STM-1 (155 Mbps) connectivity fell by 55% in US cities (49% in Europe) over the past 12 months.

Read both these articles and the discussion they generated at DataCenterTalk.Com. Add your 2 cents if you feel brave. ;)

We all know that broadband
suppliers
advertise their speeds as "up to" a certain level. But
how fast is your actual connection? Now you can find out with our
broadband speed test,
use the checker below to find out. To get accurate results make sure that you
are not using your internet connection for anything else while the test runs
