Examples of customers who may benefit from 10GPON include:

 

  • Campuses or businesses with large numbers of users
  • SMEs or home businesses involved in creating and uploading high quality video or graphics content
  • Multi-site customers with need to exchange large quantities of data between sites
  • High end gamers or early adopters.

Surprised that category of people is actually recognized by Chorus finally.

I tried my luck getting in on the trial. Unsuccessful unfortunately. (To be fair, I also don't meet the criteria. Fibre runs past my house, but I can't access it until December, or pay $25k)

I'm surprised they even bothered mentioning gamers considering most AAA online titles use well less than 10mbps.

Yeah, I agree there.
I suppose the amount of junk games they are throwing out the door with 200GB of updates a week it could be justified in some sense. Even then 10G would keep a small city afloat...

You forgot this part:

 

*Only if they all simultaneously load up their lines 100% then they will see a contended bandwidth resource. Otherwise they will get max line speed when the perfect conditions are met (like never apart from your own ISP's speed test server, you guys literally pay to have bragging rights)

@BMarquis Please humor @hio77 and I in advising the average Gig users bandwidth usage at any given time and their months data?

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

Sorry guys, I'm not going to release info that isn't mine to release. I'm just a network engineer and don't have that data myself anyway.

 

but - https://vimeo.com/280306454

 

The want for bandwidth is only going to continue - that includes at a per-user level - people want more GigaBytes than ever before.

 

 

 

I'll try remember to get some 10GPON ONT photos for ya'll.

10gbit seems like a bit of an excessive jump

 

What about 1gbps/1gbps or 2/2 etc?

You guys know there's been a 10Gbps (home) trial quietly running at the northern end of the country since mid-last-year right? (not chorus)
