Could the internet soon be obsolete?

'The Grid' created by Cern - the same people who created the internet - have created a connection 10,000 times faster than the typical broadband connection. It could "provide the kind of power needed to transmit holographic images; allow instant online gaming with hundreds of thousands of players; and offer high-definition video telephony for the price of a local call" 'The Grid' would not be prone to failures due to disconnected wires. This product won't be a household name anytime soon, but it is being made available to many businesses, schools, and research facilities. It has already been used to create a new malaria drugs. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,347212,00.html

i don't think the internet is going to be obsolete because i think that it will only improve and it will never go away. the one that you are talking about is kinda like the internet. the only difference is that it has a new name and it is more faster than the one that we have now. maybe ten years from now, we would witness this so called The Grid in our homes. i would like to experience what this noise is all about. i am all about speed and hight tech baby. i love technology and science. i am always excited when something good is invented to make life on earth easier than before.
