CEATEC 2008: KDDI's fat pipe in action

Just in case you thought I'd been at the Yebisu a bit too enthusiastically before wittering on about the au by KDDI 1Gbps internet access plan in the news section, here's the proof of it in action.

OK, so it's not delivering the full speed of which it's capable, but even in the admittedly less than perfect circumstances of a busy show-floor - the enemy of all things internet, not to mention wi-fi or cellular - the company is still measuring upload and download speeds most of us here in the UK can only dream about.

For now I'll just be carrying on with my 100Mbps hotel room connection, which just tested at a 62Mbps download speed.
