AT&T was announced as a big winner in the FCC Auction of frequency for next generation wireless services, and with AT&T expecting to deliver AT&T 3G services to nearly 350 major U.S. markets by the end of the year, they are already planning for the years ahead when our bandwidth needs are greater and more digital mobile services are in use.
With broadband speeds in the hundreds of Megabits – this is no slow connection and promises much for the future of wireless.
Today at the Intel Developers Forum a new specification for USB 3.0 was released. This new connectivity standard will be completely backwards compatible and enhances the existing connection with some optical, yes – fiber, strands thrown in the mix.
Best part? It will offer ten times the existing bandwidth of USB, which means nearly a 5 Gigabit connection. While it may be some time before we can utilize such a fast connection – I’m sure something will have it slowing down in no time!
