More Bandwdth Coming

We've recently upgraded to Verizon FiOS and are getting roughly 20 Mb/s downstream and 5 Mb/s upstream. We could have paid for more, but I don't think we're even using what we have. That hasn't stopped the providers from increasing their potential bandwidth offerings. I expect that as these double and triple-digit bandwidth become commonplace, we'll start to see more and more services that take advantage of this wealth of bandwidth. Maybe we'll all be holograms:

100Mbps Verizon FiOS to (Probably) Arrive in 2009: Hong Kong Still Snickers
With Comcast upping its speeds to 50Mbps in a few markets, Verizon's gotta roll out a big, round number to compete, so they've announced, and then hedged, the upcoming rollout of 100Mbps FiOS service, starting hopefully in 2009.
