Fun things to do on a 1 Gbps connection

Definitely makes sense if you are going for storage for decades, guess not old enough and too depressed to think so far ahead nor i have any pictures/videos I think as important

But personal disk will still be pretty relevant in future for decent amount of tasks where latency is important.
No matter how advanced the technology is, speed of light will be a limiting factor

Not being old enough or depressed enough isn't an argument to counter cold storage and is irrelevant.

By the time you feel you are "old and depressed" enough, the information will be gone forever.

Optical disks and tapes are limited by their physical interfaces. As @sriivatsava mentioned, the physical connections will be lost forever and it will be hard to find replacements over time. So storing it on physical devices does not make sense.

Personal disks will become like cache/RAM storage in future in my opinion, just holding enough information locally to counter the light speed issues when interfacing with the network.

So rather than RAM being as it is now which is caching local data in memory, I can imagine a RAM/cache for network storage.

@Sushubh You think the external TB hard drive will be operational 60-70 years from now?

I'd bet my money on Amazon being around rather than the hard drive.

Hope that answers the question.

@Sushubh Definitely not but they are at least accountable for our data. If there comes a situation where they'll have to shut their business, we can get our archive or there will be an alternate services which will take over. On the other hand, maintaining our physical media disks/devices will be near impossible.

3.3, and it's weird, it's very easy to consume 100 Gb a day at these speeds. Even a single Speedtest consumes about 2 Gigs.

well they are giving you enough data to let you consume 110GB per day so there's that.

Horses for courses. At that price and speed, putting a data cap is unwarranted.

I wouldn't mind 1gig connection to play with and stress test my hardware. But for longer term i would rather take multiple connections each with the 3.3 TB addon.
