    The Grid - The New Internet - It's Coming!!

    How would you like to download a film in a few seconds or talk to a holographic image of your friends overseas as if they were stood in front of you in realtime. It may soon be coming.

    the net is vast and infinite....


    "the grid" sounds like its straight out of ghost in the shell, so damn good if you ask me!

    will be interesting seeing a framework like that come into use.

    Well we certainly won't be getting it over in Hull. Hull can't even deal with broadband. Mainly down to the fact that our infrastructure used is the one put in over 100 years ago for the original telephone system which was design to only handle 2kps, and we trying to force down 6mbps. and all for a bargin price of £29.99
