The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is currently developing a new norm enabling 1GB/s internet connectivity through copper telephone wires over distances of up to 250m.
Dubbed G.fast, the technology would bring fiber-optic level performance to pre-existing network infrastructures, reducing upgrade costs. The norm could go into effect as early as 2014.
In theory, the new norm would provide a connection speed of 1GB/s over a distance of up to 250m through existing copper telephone wire networks.Customers would be able to install the upgrade to this norm on their own, without the need for exterior technical assistance. For internet service providers, this would also mean a quicker rollout.
If approved, G.fast will give access to ultra high-speed internet connectivity and its numerous applications: HD video streaming, large file transfers over the cloud, and high-def voice and video communication.
According to the ITU, several leading operators, integrated circuit manufacturers and systems providers are collaborating on the development of the G.fast norm.

WebRTC is the future of Web communication if the W3C has anything to say about it. It's an HTML5 technology that turns your browser into a video/audio communication tool. The only problem standing in its way was that it would only work if both users were on the same browser, but the folks at Mozilla and Google have found a way around it.
Google and Mozilla jointly announced the RTCPeerConnection today that brings interoperability to WebRTC clients on both Firefox and Chrome. This will allow users of either browser to engage in video/audio chats by just using the power of the Web instead of relying on third-party plugins.
RTCPeerConnection is currently available on the Chrome 25 beta and the latest build of Firefox Nightly. Once you download one of those, set the media.peerconnection.enabled to true in about:config and you'll be set.
For the developers out there, Mozilla has a lengthy tutorial on how to bring RTCPeerConnection to your apps at its blog post. Check it out to get all the details.

KUALA LUMPUR- Several websites with the ‘.com.my’ and ‘.MY’ domains experienced technical issues when it was hacked this morning by a group known as TiGER-M@TE.
Several major websites that were affected include Google, Dell, Microsoft, MSN Malaysia, Bing, and Kaspersky.
The frontpage of the website was changed with the following text, “Hello Malaysia, you think you are more advanced than us? Respect our workers, we will respect you! Running it since 2007.”
Last month, at least 41 government agencies’ website faced technical difficulties after it was hacked by an international group of hackes known as ‘Anonymous.’
In May, PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail’s blog was allegedly hacked to give an impression that a ‘sex video’ purportedly involving her daughter, Nurul Izzah Anwar, was genuine.
In March, Google experienced a technical glitch after a search for “Sabah” showed a result in which the state was described as “illegitimate”. The incident happened during the Malaysia-Filipino standoff over Sabah’s sovereignty.
Meanwhile Google denied its website was hacked. - MD | source
