Re: AT&T U-verse FTTP speeds, why do they limit fibre to 18/1.5?
said by ConstantineM:AT&T has old/crappy fiber equipment and they are too cheap to replace it as FTTP customers only account for 10% or less of their consumer base. They don't think the ROI would be worth it and their shareholders still think dial-up is a viable option so in order to maximize profits and please shareholders they don't "waste" any money on FTTP customers as shareholders already think that 18/1.5 is "fast."
Anyhow. Still no word on how come FTTP is limited to 30/3.6 link layer provisioning. What's holding it from the 32/5 that is available for FTTN?
