Re: upload speeds

BPON split 32 way's 19.4375Mbps download and 4.84375Mbps upload per user.

GPON split 32 way's 77.75Mbps Download and 38.875Mbps upload per user.

XG-PON split 32 way's 312.5Mbps download and 78.125Mbps upload per user.

FiOS Quantum user's need to be Upgraded to XG-PON to prevent Over Subscription Problem's down the road. Especially those on the 150/65Mbps and 300/65Mbps tiers. That way all users can be Guaranteed there level of speed.

The vast majority of FiOS subscribers use their service to surf the web and check their email. There is no over subscribtion problem now or down the road for quite some time.

That's what they said when they built the interstate system , now look at traffic near major cities, 2mph during rush hours.

That is very dependent on what area you live in. Netflix streaming, torrents, gaming. If you live in an area with a high concentration of tech workers like me it's a lot more than just surfing the web and checking email.

We've had this discussion before and as I said before the readers of this discussion group are not typical. I live in an upscale neighborhood on Long Island, NY (myself not included) and most of the users are as I described. The vast majority of the customers in the in the FiOS footprint are as I described. Many of the homes I visit here still have analog, CRT tv's and five to ten year old computers. Over subscribtion is not and won't be a problem except in very isolated areas.

PONs are split in the upstream direction. Because each CPE cannot see the others, the transmitter must be assigned a precise time period where it can use the fibre without stepping on anyone. Downstream is one-to-many... every CPE sees the same thing -- the payload is encrypted so there's no worry of anyone seeing anyone else's traffic.

The asymmetric nature of internet speeds is a holdover from earlier days when usage was highly asymmetric -- fetching a web page, for example, transmits a small request and gets a voluminous response. Then various technologies were designed exploiting that asymmetric nature -- analog modems, ADSL, DOCSIS, etc. PONs are no different here... there's a finite upstream spectrum that has to be evenly and predictably divided.

[Note: looking at the 4wk totals from my office... we're almost symmetric... 650MB more up than down. Uploading VM images to cloud hosting really skews the average.]

that makes sense
