Numbers like 10 Gbps are mere parlor tricks.
Time will tell whether Verizon and 10 Gbps GPON are up to the task. For now, Verizon's leap to 10 Gbps is about market positioning and bragging rights rather than delivering a useful service to a mass customer market.
Unlike that theoretical 800Mbps lab test, this was done over actual deployed fiber to the home. 10 Gbps is a bit exaggerating in terms of what people will actually see in their service, but 1-2 Gbps is well within the range of what FiOS is capable of. I doubt you understand the capability of FTTH.
Gotcha. You really have to dig deep into context to get it.
This signature has consumed several bytes of your bandwidth.
I'm actually just making fun of things Verizon has said in the past.
I just changed the speeds and the company name. I just couldn't help but think of their thoughts on "fast speeds" when they weren't providing the top speeds vs this experiment.
It's a combination of impractical (at the moment, though I could definitely see speeds approaching 1 Gbps over the next few years) and cool in a nerdy way. I'm all for innovation for faster connections. I know how FTTH technology works.
