Re: Actual / promise ration and FiOS Even under gpons the fiber will support 2.4gb down and 1.2gb up, however depending upon the size of the optical bundles and switches in the cabinet (NODE) customers may not see these speeds without futher upgrades. Verizon is not expecting to deliver over 150/75 any time soon. It's just now that 50/8 by cablevision has become affordable and it took about 12+ years for them to offer better bandwidth (within consumer's price range). Using that benchmark, it'll take Comcast 20 years, AT&T 50 years.. Qwest/CenturyTel NEVER + 1 day.
