I'll be the first to sign up if it does. I just query what forces they
are using if they have managed to change the laws of Physics in their
favour. I'm off to hunt up my sources and do the math. It's been rather
a long time, and maybe something has changed, but basically we
assume (generously) that they mean 45,000,000 bits per second and
not 47,185,920 bits per second, and we are talking about passing a
signal in one of two ways: digital or analogue. If it's digital, then
we mean causing copper molecules to signal a change of state that many
times a second. If it's analogue, we mean framing a carrier wave which
will encapsulate that much data in an even higher frequency. If they
want to deliver this over the local loop, and everyone on my string
signs up for it, I'm unclear how the copper will stay solid.
