Internet II is coming...

So a 10Mbps fiber ATM circuit translates, after the cell tax and
packet stredding, to 6Mbps on a real link. Is this not slow enough to
be a bottleneck?


It might be for video conferencing but not for ftp, http, smtp, nntp and
the various other normal protocols. But then, I don't do video
conferencing on the net. The closest I get to that is running some
RealAudio stuff occasionally and it works just fine.
