Re: FiOS & Caps

You do realize that you are still shared at one point in their network. it might be closer to their office but eventually it gets shared. ALSO if 23 of those people have 100 megabits or higher service or everybody has 75 and all use the connection at the same time it can get congested also.

Also docsis 3 is MUCH cheaper to deploy. Thats the reason why verizon stopped the fios rollout. they just cant compete on price. who needs speeds past 100 down? I have a 100/100 copnenction at work and most sites do not serve me at that speed.
Also look on the net they are working at 10 gig/10gig for cablenetworks also on coax.

Coax is not the bottleneck its how docsis is configured thats the problem. if you got rid of the docsis configuration and used it as one big connection you will find its much much faster then you think.

DOCSIS isn't really cheaper it costs bandwidth among other things as well as all now docsis equipment at the end users home as well as cable office. Coax is limited even without docsis it has its limitations.

FiOS didn't stop rolling it out cause cable is cheaper that makes no sense.

Fiber plant is by far cheaper over the long run than any copper cable plant to run. It takes less people, power, fewer lines and even less hardware to manage a fiber plant that a copper one. It suffers from 0 interference and degradation over time and its arguably far cheaper to upgrade with virtually 0 limitations on speed and opportunities for future services.

The sharing on a fiber plant happens when you hit the back haul line when your shared gige line connects to a massive multi gig pipe(10, 40 or 100)....there will be little to no interference ever on a fiber plant compared to a similar copper one.

Sure it does.

It costs Verizon more money to build a new fiber plant, than it costs the cable companies to maintain an existing coax plant that has already been paid for.

That is why the cable companies can beat FiOS in pricing. They may not be able to match them in speed, but most people are unwilling to pay the premium cost for the additional speed.
