Hypothetical question: Will ADSL be come obsolete.


[link to this post]
 
My apologies I'm probably over thinking this one; If an exchange has 6000 lines
and 200 people can't have fibre do you think the plug will be pulled on ADSL one day leaving users without a broadband service ?

No

There is no-one who cannot have fibre, just the question of who pays for it

ADSL may at some point in the distant future be replaced by GPON FTTH from an exchange up to 60 miles way, so my answer would be "yes, eventually".

Would be nice if it did and I could pick up 100 Meg unlimited fibre for 15 quid a month.

Not likely in my lifetime I don't think.

The kit's on sale for long range GPON, http://www.telnet-ri.es/fileadmin/user_upload/hojas_... just leaves the minor issue of getting the commercials right smile

£30/month with it replacing the copper would be a more likely entry level.

Doesn't that mean all the copper wires will be replaced by fibre ? I guess that means they just need to run fibre to the home which is cheaper than maintaining an FTTC cabinet?

I think we can be sure that ADSL will at some point become obsolete.

Cheaper to maintain but more expensive to install

But do you think the 5%, who won't get fibre for commercial reasons. will then loose thier service? Or will ADSL keep going until this isn't an issue?
