  • gwern said “don’t see it happening – emitters & detectors really expensive, single-purpose (unlike cables), and the situation could be completely worthless based on tiny regulatory tweaks, which an extravagance like this might well cause!on 2012-05-01
  • RandomThinker estimated 2% and said “I give that about the same credence as tachyons. I hear those are pretty fast!on 2012-05-01

  • arthurb estimated 25% and said “The fastest line between New-York and Chicago currently uses microwaves. The previous fastest was built by SpreadNetworks for $140M. The world’s biggest neutrino detector only cost $280. Only 25% because of regulatory risk.on 2012-05-02

  • JoshuaZ estimated 1% and said “Thinking about this more, bandwith is going to be a serious limiting issue. on 2014-04-28
  • arthurb estimated 20% and said “JoshuaZ: bandwith doesn’t matter that much. Being able to send a single bit (market jumped up/down) can be enormously valuable.(lowering prediction due to increasing regulatory concerns)on 2014-08-07
  • JoshuaZ said “Arthurb, you would need for this to be useful being able to send at least one bit a second or so.That’s a resolution of a neutrino signature which is extremely difficult to get. on 2014-08-09
