BellSouth Network Upgrades
Enough for decent video?
"We believe it is possible to provide speeds fast enough to make triple play services over IP a reality using a mosaic approach of fiber and next generation DSL,"
says Bellsouth's CTO Bill Smith in a prepared statement
. BellSouth's broadband network upgrade is less ambitious than that of SBC or Verizon, offering homes 12Mbps of bandwidth over a single copper line; 4-6Mbps of that will be for DSL (ADSL2+ specifically), according to a December press release
. It's a tight squeeze for quality video offerings.
