Re: Actually, I have to agree with Time Warner and At&t for once
said by silbaco:Um.. I could prove you wrong there along with quite a few people with U-Verse. Trying to shove VDSL through aging unshielded copper is asking for trouble. Especially when the copper isn't that good to begin with.
I didn't say never. There is a time to upgrade and there is a time to wait. At&t actually has ftth u-verse in new construction. But the difference to the consumer is unnoticeable.
said by silbaco:Which network are you talking about? If it's wireless technologies, don't even bother. There's only so much you can do with the slice of spectrum you have. Wireless and Fiber is like comparing night and day. Actually, the better comparison would be comparing Wireless and DSL. Both only have so much bandwidth they can handle.
Was not long ago everyone was saying deploy new wireless networks. Sprint did just that. And now they are decommissioning it after wasting billions. They jumped the gun too quickly and have wasted tons of money that someone has to pay for.
said by silbaco:So, your solution is to wait until someone else does? According to your theory, it'd never happen.
When the time is right for a company to deploy ftth, they will. For some small companies, that time is now. For larger companies that can deploy VDSL or other fast technologies and have the overwhelming majority of their subscribers be happy, that time might be a few years from now. At that time fiber will be even cheaper and more logical.
Plus, why deploy fiber when we can waste money on newer technologies that shove the same signal down the same crappy copper lines? Basically, they're putting a "Band-aid" on a spurting wound. Sure, it'll work.. But for how long?
The real fix for this issue is to deploy fiber and recycle the copper.
