A circulating rumor suggests that Cisco is developing a new technology to give the Internet a major speed boost. Details on this rumored technology are sparse but Cisco claims it will “forever change the Internet” and will “show what’s possible when networking gets an adrenaline boost.” The new technology will target telecommunication service providers and will be marketed as a means of improving the customer’s high speed Internet experience which we hope translates into 100Mbps speeds with no throttling and no bandwidth caps. Cisco’s new technology will be revealed on March 9th, slightly ahead of the March 17th unveiling of the National Broadband Initiative plan, a plan which not so coincidentally will push for minimum Internet data transmission speeds of 100Mbps and will require telcos to pipe this high speed service to 100 million homes in the US within ten years.
