BT today announced plans to roll out fibre-based, super-fast broadband to as many as 10 million homes by 2012. The £1.5 billion programme will deliver a range of services with top speeds of up to 100 Mb/s with the potential for speeds of more than 1,000 Mb/s in the future.
can i say to get every home onto fiber or close to every home would take longer than 2012
ummm, how close, 1.5km close enough, by 2012 cabnetisation will have most homes in NZ that close or closer, no?
I am not sure what Telecom/Chorus have in mind for future upgrades within their cabinets, but the ISAM gear going in is part of a whole family of technologies including GPON that can be mixed and matched within the same frame, so no reason why once cabnetisation is complete that a gradual attachment of FTTP/H cannot occur.
So not a lot diff between whats happening here and there me thinks
haha down in my area nothing there is going down, no new cabients or anything we only had one person get fiber and thats since i been on the job besidies rural area's? i think it might be different as in distance and the the type of terrain
I can understand city's but i will guess i see in the future
Rygrass, you are presumably in the boonies, my guess is that the UK fibre rollout wont roll past rural UK either.
For folk in the country, I suspect in time we will more likely find the likes of power utilities knocking on your door with a nice blue fibre cable over their shoulder, rather than Telecom, but its still one hell of a way off yet.
