1.2Gb Cable Modems Ready to Go / 10G EPON Production Starts


[link to this post]
 
Couple of stories that went past my Twitter feed.

1.2Gb cable modems.

10Gb EPON.

The interesting parts for those on VM will I suspect be things like:

People with faster connections generally use about 30% more total bandwidth, adding another 20-50 cents per month. All in, the cost to the company of offering 500 meg service rather than 30-50 meg should be $3-4/month over three years.

Interesting stuff, and while I'm on 120/12 already it's crazy how fast such speeds become obsolete as technology advances in line with the availability of bandwidth. Hopefully gigabit will become the norm sooner rather than later, but tbh I'm more interested in extra upstream, which is harder to achieve on DOCSIS due to the channel layout.

Oh for Google Fibre, which is 1Gbps symmetrical. A whole Gbps upload! Now that would be a news day! smile

You are aware that gigabit is available in UK just limited locations just like Google Fiber

gigabit both ways without using a business leased line type of service?

Yeah, but as Chrysalis says I'm not aware that it's symmetrical? Either way it's not in our area and I'm loathe to move too far... lol

Symmetric
http://www.gigaclear.com/home-use £69/month, cheaper slower options
http://b4rn.org.uk/ B4RN £35/month symmetric
https://www.hyperoptic.com/web/guest/home Hyperoptic £50/month symmetric

I could mention more services, but they are not symmetric

Interesting! smile Thanks very much, hopefully they'll catch on and become more widespread. That or I get the opportunity to move house.... it wouldn't be the first time! I moved 25 miles away to get a cable connection once. ADSL2+ didn't agree with me when VM were offering 3x the speed I was achieving haha

Hyperoptic is city based and expanding

B4rn is rural Lancashire and GigaClear will come to a rural area if proven demand from a couple of hundred customers.

After that there are more FTTH, a new one starting in Lincolnshire, Cotswold Broadband (Chipping Norton).

Its just like Google Fibre you either have or have not got it in your area, and I last time I looked there was just 800-1000 people actually connected to Google Fibre earlier this year.

Thanks very much for the info, once again. Very interesting. I'd actually consider moving to Lancashire (about 30 mins down the road) just for the fibre. What a sad life us geeks lead haha. Cheers wink
