Re: Here it comes...

I keep reading on here where 'copper' is going to die, as its so old.

It can last for decades, just like the power lines going to and in our homes.

True but maintenance (opex) cost for fiber is much lower then copper and once a company has installed FTTP the cable plant is able to deliver virtually unlimited bandwidth. At most they need to swap out electronics which is cheap compared to stringing cable.
