Yea, you read the headline correctly. NTT DoCoMo recently announced a new prototype wireless network with bandwidth capabilities approaching 2.5Gbps (yes, that’s GIGabits per second).
According to Technology Review where I found this article (it’s pretty techy, btw), that’s fast enough to download a DVD in less than 10 seconds! The technology is far from ready to go so it’s not like you’ll be watching a streaming version of Aeon Flux on your Razr anytime soon. Besides, the receiver they used to demonstrate the new network had 6 antennas – not real attractive in my opinion.

(Okay, I also moonlighted as the artist on this one – this is what about 20 seconds in Photoshop gets me.)
