Sega’s internet service from the Dreamcast days, SegaNet, is being resurrected soon and will be offering up a lot more than just 56k dial-up! The new service will take advantage of fiber optic technology to deliver speeds up to 2Gfps! No that’s not Gigabits, that’s GigaFLOPS! Sega’s new internet service is promising speeds 100x faster than what any other service provider currently offering. There’s currently no word on pricing but there’s a rumor that you’ll be able to pay for the service using a new digital currency called “Meseta”. Sega plans to roll out the service slowly to make sure all the kinks are ironed out before launching worldwide. Initially the service will be exclusive to Dreamcast owners who pre-order the new Ultraband Adapter and PlanetWeb 4.0 browser but Sega says the service should be available to everyone by 2049. Keep an eye on the official SegaNet website for updates and be sure to sign up to be notified when the service is available in your area.
Who isn’t?! I’ve already pre-ordered the Ultraband Adapter and PlanetWeb 4.0!
