Lightning-fast internet

Editor's note:

Cisco made headlines this week announcing a next generation router that will revolutionise the internet by increasing downloads to unheard of speeds.

The Cisco press release makes the following claims about its CRS-3 router:

It enables the entire printed collection of the Library of Congress to be downloaded in just over one second; every man, woman and child in China to make a video call, simultaneously; and every motion picture ever created to be streamed in less than four minutes.

How soon can we have this boon? It is up to the internet service provider industry...they will need to upgrade their equipment to make these promises a reality for the public.
