What Verizon needs to do for the future is to upgrade all central offices that are on BPON. I think I read somewhere that all newer buildouts are using GPON and all initial rollouts were on BPON.  BPON technology I think is limited to 100 megabit.  GPON  can do over 1000 megabit DL.

 

Is there anything preventing Verizon from offering symmetrical speeds eg 50/50 and eventually 100/100.  A few muni projects do tha tin the US and those symmetrical speeds are quite common in Europe and Japan.

The 101 Mbps content\speed that is being talked about is DOCSIS 3.0 technology on cable.  [Cable], not fios, not copper, [cable].    If you do a little research about the cable experience you learn that the only way \ only time that content\speed will be available to the end user is when that end user is currently the only user in the local area neighborhood currently using that stream coming to the neighborhood, when all other things are also good.   Which, of course, means that it will not be realized.     The technology will increase the content\speeds realized, but still not equal to what fios already has in content\speed.  And FiOS is still improving.

To add a bit of info to that. As long as the technology is the same from a few years ago, my info should be correct.

 

Each node will hold 300 connections. This runs both Cable TV and Internet. Now if only 10 out of the 300 connections are cable modems your speed will be faster because less people are using the internet on a given node. But the likelihood is that a lot more then 10 people have internet on a node. So the more people on it the slower your speeds will go. 

 

But with Fios, it does not matter how many people have a connection in your area your speeds will stay the same. You do not have to fight for bandwidth with 300 other houses.

LOL, you know what's funny? OOL Bandwidth is shared with the rest of the surrounding area, meaning you probably won't be able to get the full 12MB/s speed. Also, Verizon is testing 100Mbps, and they already have 20Mbps upload, so if VZ unleashes a 100/20 package, it'll beat Cablevision, since you get your own bandwidth. And $300 activation fee? Pfft.
