Re: Consumer confusion Yes, but a fiber-coax hybrid is fiber to probably your block or at least close. Fiber at the COs is a lot farther away than the fiber from the cable company.
In addition, that coax carries a lot more bandwidth than a pair of wires.
I agree with the poster, fiber is right out there, the cable companies can do what they want in the future. For example, if they wanted to launch full fiber deployment they could probably do a small city in 6 months because the major work is done, the fiber run to the neighborhood.
Run fiber to the home and cable from the same place a mile away. What will make the difference is what is beyond that mile. All the talk about fiber to the home is just great, but really it is not needed yet by cable companies.
