Re: I've tested it too Back in the day, I had "purely fluid" gaming on my 360, over a 3Mbps DSL.
I sure hope Google has something planned to utilize these completely unnecessary speeds. Give the rest of the ISP's a kick in the ass to do upgrades. If KC fails, we may NEVER see this stuff.
I was talking Onlive Cloud gaming service, are you familiar with the service? The gaming server is somewhere else - completely different than gaming consoles.
Nope. What else is there !? lol

I have to agree. They need a killer app to show what you can really use this for. Otherwise, few will see the value in it.
Would think the cheap uplink will matter more than the downlink for new generation of apps. Since most ISPs have low uplink or charge much more for more, not many apps are geared for high uplink. Would like to do Playon or Orb type of home server in HD (or very high HQ anyway) when traveling.
Probably don't need more than 100Mbps for a long time but if they are going to offer 1Gbit for less than most ISPs, why not. With multiple streaming downloads, it's could potentially be 10 times faster for downloads for very large content than 100Mbps. I'll take it over TWC charging $50 for 8/1.
Will be interesting to see if Google does anything unique for TV services in the future. They apparently have open APIs on the DVR box for Android apps to access.
