While your Internet speed at home might be pretty fast, you’ll probably still drool at the fact that Verizon has been performing technical trials that could see bandwidth speeds of up to 10Gbps in each home. This is achievable thanks to the prototype Alcatel Lucent XG-PON2 nodes which are about 200 times faster than FiOS’ regular 50Mbps service. GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) access can theoretically offer download speeds of up to 2.4Gbps or 1.2Gbps upload speeds. With such speedy transfers, you probably won’t have to hear of the word “buffering” for some time and downloading HD videos should be a cinch. Check out a video of Verizon testing the system after the jump, and remember to wipe off the drool.
