Gandalf to speed up Internet access

Gandalf to speed up Internet access | Emerging Technology Trends | ZDNet.com
Gandalf is not only a character from J. R. R. Tolkien's universe. It is also the acronym of a European networking project, which stands for "Gbit/s Access Network using remote Delivery opticAL Feeder." Its goal is to carry data at speeds up to a thousand times faster than with existing DSL technology and a hundred times faster than Wi-Fi networks. According to IST Results, Gandalf "uses an optical feeder that allows data to be sent over cable in a format that also allows it to be transmitted over wireless networks." And as it should be cheap to implement, we should soon have bandwidths up to a gigabit per second in our homes for the same price we pay today for a few megabits per second.

Looks promising. Hell, I'll take anything that will get me gigabit access at the house.
