Re: ftth is too expensive.
Cablelabs is looking into epoc to get 10gigabits/10gigabit speeds over coax.
Unlike telephone cable , coax is not the barrier for speed. Just like fiber its the equipment at either end thats the problem.
Also they are looking into basically having docsis over fiber. This will allow cablecompanies to roll out fiber to new construction while still using coax.
The cable companies do not have to upgrade to fttp anytime soon. Heck even Verizon stopped their roll out.
