Re: [BC] Horrendous YouTube performance
That is pathetic for gpon. There's a local community in AB that is doing a fiber roll out to the entire town and is planning on offering symmetrical 50x50 on gpon, just to start with. The availability of gpon on Telus side is extremely limited, also VDSL2 is extremely limited by distance from the DSLAM. At my old place I barely qualified for the 25Mb, and only got it due to a Telus tech on this site. Also, their hardware is crap. The V1000h is crap, and I personally had 3 failures. Last one being 4 days due to a long weekend. Those 4 days I have no TV or internet, as Telus rely's on a single point of failure for two services. The v2000h which is being put in now doesn't look promising either. I've actually had Telus within the past year, and my opinion is based on personal facts and not just speculation. If Telus provided descent hardware that could be bridged, they might have a mediocre service.
