Dr. Papandriopoulos expects the technology to be deployed by ISPs in the next 2-3 years, which should give DSL providers a nice boost. Who needs FTTH (fiber-to-the-home) anyway?
An Australian researcher is on the road to riches after discovering a way to make broadband connections up to 100 times faster.
University of Melbourne research fellow Dr John Papandriopoulos is in the throes of moving to Silicon Valley after developing an algorithm to reduce the electromagnetic interference that slows down ADSL connections.
Most ADSL services around the world are effectively limited to speeds between 1 to 20Mbps, but if Dr Papandriopoulos's technology is successfully commercialised that speed ceiling would be closer to 100Mbps. more...
