      That’s a good question Jake!
      The research I did during my PhD was aimed at developing new ways of using lasers to get faster internet, but it takes a bit of time for that research to be used by UPC and Eircom to actually get faster internet in people’s homes. The work I did will be expanded on by lots of other people and eventually it will all be packaged into something people can buy. It might take a couple of years for this to happen though. But then my I can say I’ve made the internet faster :).
