Yabanize:
sbiddle: It's not only retiring older gear, it would also require shutting down their older existing DVB-T TV MUXs and replacing the older STBs - and I can't see that happening with the massive cost cutting occurring at VF.

Even with that you'd need to completely redesign and reengineer the entire network to reduce node sizes to come anywhere close to offering similar contention ratios for higher speeds as what UFB offers.



DVB-T? Do you mean DVB-C


Oops yes.

Right now they're transmitting every channel twice, older MPEG2 channels for the old STBs, and once again for the T-box.

When I can finally get fibre, I might try the 1Gb plan because I can.

Do I _need_ it ? No.

But then again how many of us every drive more than 120k/h in our cars which have speedo's which so 200k/h+

Personally I am more interested in international traffic routing then ultra fast speeds. A lower ping is key to gaming.
