It's Comcast remaining competitive. I thought that's what consumers wanted.

Should be priced around $300 a month with a $500 installation/activation fee, and a hefty ETF.

Yea, I don't think Verizon is losing sleep over this.

Verizon FiOS Ultimate Tier w/2-yr Contract
You honestly don't think this will get VZ's attention in its competing FiOS markets? Sure, not many consumers are interested in paying $200-300 dollars for access to the Internet, but just as the FiOS deployment was, this is about Comcast positioning itself for the future.

Once again, given all of the whining around here, why are people not happy that Comcast is starting to jump on the FTTH bandwagon?

The present achievement indicates that transmission of one petabit per second (Pbps), capacity equivalent to sending 5,000 HDTV videos of two hours in a single second is possible over 50 km, which is approximately the distance between medium-haul telecom offices. This sets a new world record throughput over a single strand of optical fiber.

Fiber just smoked the 1Pbps barrier...obsolete copper cable would never be able to come close to this!
