Super-speed broadband could arrive as early as '06

CNN Money (article)

Broadband Internet access via TV cables will be able to hit 100 megabits per second as early as next year, 50 times faster than the average broadband speeds now offered to cable TV homes, a Finnish firm said Wednesday.

Could this be the beginning of streaming high quality movies and sports over the internet? Could I get NFL Sunday ticket over the internet? Please?

In twenty years we are gonna know our cable companies not because they provide archaic cable to our TVs but they provide the cable internet to our homes. (But hopefully by then they got that fiber optic stuff going.)

I'm still more interested in BPL... I think that would be bigger than high(er) speed cable because the lines are already in place. Its a gaping security hole though, much like wireless is... but Germany and Australia are trying it out, so maybe BPL will be here soon in a more secure means. *shrugs*
