Karl,

Geez, how can I respond to such a wonder? Given your scenario, I would
posit something like X-band speeds, which works out to 10^10 bps, assuming
you use the right waveguide. Now, if you are phond of photons, we can
escalate that a few megatons. Seriously, existing Unix implementations
might horse up to a couple of megabits, but Craymonsters on Hyperbolts
might up that a magnitude. Meanwhile, ask Dave Clark at MIT about the
NETBLT performance, which is currently dimming the lights on FATNET
at megabit speeds over real satellite channels.
