Re: In the meantime...
Actually you did. I was referring more to the general mentality of Verizon planning for the future, while AT&T is stuck in the past. Their lousy last mile speed offerings (compared to VZ) are due to the copper, but the new caps are due entirely to backbone limits. (or at least their claim of backbone limits)
Backbone limitations aren't an issue. AT&T's backbone is just fine and will be incrementally upgraded no differently than Verizon's, or any other tier one provider's.
Debating last mile infrastructure upgrades or planning isn't related to backbone upgrades, regardless of the provider. How much copper does Verizon still have in its plant?
