Re: [The Call] So, I was on the phone with Rogers...

Aside from new developments, I don't think we'll see FTTH for existing customers in our lifetime on HFC networks. Coax still has a lot of life in it, and there are various technologies to get HFC to offer the same performance as FTTH.

Rogers is already working on FTTH and not using RGoG/DOCSIS. DOCSIS simply cannot handle the upstream speed they want to offer. I also wasn't talking about only Rogers but also Bell. Both of them will continue to invest heavily into DOCSIS/VDSL2 going forward with DOCIS 3.1 and VDSL2 vectoring but both of them have serious limitations.


sadly us Etobicoke people will probably never have ftth
