A local ISP in *your region* won't mean didly squat to the rest of the world not in *your region* so it's just advertising to the local market.
The internet won't change unless verizon buy the entire world. And I don't think they're that ambitious..
Most likely it's the equivalent to our NBN. Means nothing. One day when we get fiber to the node -- we'll never get fiber to the home where I live --
we might experience the speeds they're touting but all of this at the moment down here in aus means higher prices for the same speeds as it is with
the current hardware in the exchanges.
Did anyone notice the internet speed up on the 18'th of June? I sure didn't, so therein lies your answer.
