Re: Moving the goalposts again?
said by KrK:But they didn't so fail. ADSL2+ and VDSL2 have only been deployable for about 8 years, not 16, and with any such capital-intensive, forklift upgrades, there has to be adequate demand - customers willing to pay the market rate for the service.
If corporate America has failed to deliver 4/1 speeds in the *16 years* since xDSL first became common then I think plenty of criticism is warranted, especially if it is compared internationally. In fact it deserves far more then just some criticism.
Further, you can't set an artificial bar where the technology does not apply. 4M/1M on ADSL2+ only works out to about 10K cable-feet, in the real world - so again, you're expecting yet another forklift upgrade, where there is no demand.
