No idea, I doubt it will stay at that speed, I'm assuming when more people are added in my area, and the network gets tweaked a bit it'll get closer to 10. I was pleasantly surprised when I ran that Speedtest! So far am quite impressed compared to Shaw's BB50.

Niiice.
For those of us outside GPON areas but with Turbo 50 access, two lines going to a V2000h for a 50/25 service would be awesome.
Bell Aliant for example is offering 50/30 for $84/month.

yup... but only 250gigs allowance per month
read the fine print on their terms and service

What's the point of having the highest speed internet, when you are only allowed so much before 'extra' charges are applied.

For Atlantic Canada there is no cap. The 250GB in the AUP I'm fairly certain is from the lawyers so if they have to talk to someone about their usage they have a number to fall back on. I exceed 250GB every month. A lot.

For Ontario they are instituting caps on higher FibreOP tiers (80/30 and up). Lower ones have no explicit cap.

The QoS for upload for GPON is a bit borked right now. It will eventually settle down closer to 10Mb/s.

FWIW, I'm on copper and I get around 12Mb/s for my upload.

I'm assuming once TELUS gets some extra time, they will get it back to the "posted" speeds, however enjoying the free extra right now. I've been a long time Shaw customer, but so far so good.

Long term Shaw customer here as well. I'm used to the BB100, but I'm very happy with the Optik 50. Hoping they add Optik 100 for the GPON areas sooner than later.
