Re: Rogers "Ultimate Fibre" internet

said by Qsig:

Existing structures and buildings....yeah...fibre there will be interesting unless it is more aerial deployed.

This is all I care about. There are millions of old buildings in the country, it's ridiculous that only "new" buildings get it. China, Japan, South Korea, Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Finland, Norway, Sweden, USA have all learned how to install fiber in old high rises and houses, Canada hasn't. In a lot of cases Bell/Rogers already has FTTB in the basement of high rises for remote DSLAMs and dedicated nodes, they just need work done in the the stairwells/hallways up to the customer, but they haven't documented a single rewiring project like this so far in 3 or 4 years since FTTH launched in Atlantic Canada. In Atlantic Canada Aliant installed wiring up the exterior wall of low rise building (4-5 floors) and drilled in. It was totally ugly and sloppy work, there's no way in hell that cost $3000 per address.

Unless they have clear channels to floors and then to the units, going to be hard for some of these buildings. I wonder if our ISPs ever went across to other countries to see how they ran fibre in the older buildings.

Verizon did it quite a bit but then they also sometimes cut corners. Sometimes you just can't take a straight path especially if the techs are getting paid very little.
