How Fast is a 1 Gig Connection? OMGChad “Hits the Streets” to Show Us

What can I do with a service that starts with a 1 gig connection?

With internet speeds 20x faster than the average cable customer1, you can download 25 songs in 1 second or your favorite 90-minute HD movie in less than 34 seconds.

You can also instantly access and stream the latest online movies, music and games. With these ultra-fast speeds, customers can seamlessly perform tasks like telecommuting, video-conferencing, uploading and downloading photos and videos, connect faster to the cloud and more.

A gigabit is SUPER fast.  While gamers love it, most people can’t visualize how dramatically different that speed is.

That’s where our friend OMGChad comes in.  We sent him to the streets to find out what 1Gbps really feels like.
