It is a shared service based on congestion

It is like running the fiber equivalent of uncapped DOCSIS...you get what you can get, but the GPON is still shared.

On the Nuro.jp site, there are numerous disclaimers to the effect that speeds are dependent on overall network congestion. 2Gb is simply the maximum negotiated speed.

As far as the box, it offers 802.11n and Gb LAN so you can't get 2Gb to a single device (without external bridging or something). You just have a theoretical HOUSEHOLD maximum throughput between all ports of 2Gb.

Still bitchen, but it isn't like it is a 2Gb dedicated service.

That's fine with me. If you think about it this artificial cap ISP's implement is in essence just very bad network management, since when the load on the network is low you still have to deal with the artificial cap.

We'll see. If the shared topology ends up with 64 shares and they're all web hogs, then things won't be so awesome.
