Internet2 at 100gb/s

The Internet2, a parallel network to the Internet which includes primarily research institutions, has boosted its speed from 10 gb/s to 100gb/s.  According to CNET, that means downloading a high quality movie in just a few seconds.  It might take those of us on the Internet a couple of hours to do the same.

If you’re thinking of getting on Internet2, you might think twice.  It’s focus is the development and use of leading edge network capabilities and the cost for the lowest level of membership is $12,000 per year.
