I Want Nuro!

4 years ago

My internet at home can be so slow sometimes. My husband complains when I stream video watching my Korean Drama. We uses clear which on average is about 1-3 MB for download. Google Fiber which is the new big thing allows for 1 GB of download, i.e. 1,000 MB! But over in Japan, they`ve already top that, with Nuro offering home users up to 2 GB of download speed. Imagine downloading a 2 hour movie in 1 second!

From the article below:
"Launched in Japan yesterday by Sony-supported ISP So-net, the fiber connection pulls down data at 2Gbps, and sends it up at 1Gbps. An optical network unit (ONU) given to Nuro customers comes outfitted with three Gigabit ethernet ports and supports 450Mbps over 802.11 a/b/g/n. When hitched to a two-year contract, web surfers will be set back 4,980 yen ($51) per month and pony up a required 52,500 yen (roughly $540) installation fee, which is currently being waived for folks who apply online. "

Asia is always on the cutting edge of technology. I wish the US and more importantly New York would catch up!

How fast is your internet speed?
