How is a graph showing transit prices misleading? It's not stating that's what a service provider's total bandwidth costs are ... just what transit costs.

Chattanooga TN is recognized for their 1 Gb/s Internet ... but apartment dwellers must have a landlord that hasn't already committed to a competing (slower) service. Internet speed is wonderful and sometimes reveals that our "slow computer" was actually a slow Internet. Other times, unfortunately, one discovers how slow the destination web site is running.

Internet bandwidth is the stumbling block to cloud computing. Now, Google is moving it.

Do we really think Google is trying to get into a business of laying down the fiber? I don't think so. They probably want to show that having Gb/s Internet connection is cool. Personally I am not sure why would I need so much data so quickly. My eyes and ears are barely processing all the bits around me already...Kris

Quoting IP transit prices (1$/mbit) is misleading. Huge companies like Google, OVH, Leaseweb heavily rely on public and private (point to point) peering. Public peering bandwidth is less than 0.1eur/mbit (100G ports @ AMS-IX, DE-CIX 2013)

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
