A gigabit last mile for residential users brings qualitative shifts in established assumptions about the global network environment. In this talk, we argue that these new realities warrant new thinking in how Internet applications and services should be structured.  We present our vision for organizing home networks, Internet applications, and data to capitalize on the new opportunities offered by gigabit-to-the-home connectivity and provide a few examples of translating our vision into new services and capabilities.
