The battle between cable vs telco will live on forever. Cable you can have saturation issues, telco you have distance issues. As of right now cable wins, for a simple reason of better speeds and plans. Telus just unofficially released a 50x10 plan, however it's not available everywhere, where as Shaw's 50Mb is available to their entire foot print.
What sort of disadvantage do you see with GPON?
