    They've had that a while now (not too long though). It's their fiber to residential technology. Last news I heard about that was they were expanding to six new cities. Another telecom company is also about to roll out their fiber to home comparable to Verizon's offerings.

    Hmm, the "Do I Qualify" form generates an error page for me.
    Those are some really nice prices. I'd even take the 5mbit line for $40. [​IMG]

    This is comparable to the prices i pay for my 10 Mbit down, 1 Mbit up connection.

    I wish it was available, as i would love to have fiber running into my house for a nice connection :p

    The UK is already looking at upgrading it's lines. From copper to fibre (I think) -- sad to think we used to be way ahead technologically and now we are just sat flowing back downstream thanks to BT.

    Ah well, 2mb in Feb :s

    Wouldn't converting lines from copper to fibre screw existing DSL connections?
    I know if there's already fibre in place between you and your exchange you can't have DSL.

    If it means faster lines though, I don't really care :p

    BT have in the past installed fibre in most new houses built in the 1980's, however, none have ever been in use since the telephone exchanges aren't up to scratch with technology. They reverted back to using normal copper wires as it is the most economical way of providing telephone and internet.

    I recall reading it on Neowin or some other tech site. If I recall correctly, SBC and Bellsouth are other companies that will offer fiber to residential users.

    And here's me thinking of moving my 512k connection up to a 1MB connection. Makes you feel small and insignificant with networks like that on offer :p
