Re: will deliver the performance of fiber at one-tenth the cost While FO has certain characteristics that limit performance, there is no current bandwidth limit on Single Mode Fiber...not yet.
All bandwidth limits are governed by hardware. Of course DSL cannot deliver the speeds fiber can, neither can COAX for that matter, however COAX has a looooong life ahead.
Everyone is under the impression that Europe and Asia have fiber to everyone...LOL. That's a joke. I invite you to go to Italy, Spain, France and look for yourselves. In rural Europe they are still using dialup and satellite.
Karl wants to make you think the Telcos have such deep pockets that they can and should deploy fiber and 100Mbps to everyone.
I think this Vectoring approach is pretty neat and something I would use in a campus building or MDU to wireless nodes.
