"and when all the kids come home things like jitter, packet loss, latency and simply traffic overload starts to impact things.
" .. Amen. I'm in the VoIP biz.

Between 5:00 PM and 8:00 PM, things just aren't the same.

Maybe last mile fiber will cure this; but we all know that as bandwidth grows, so will bandwidth hoggish apps.

And you are 100% right: When the packet priority issues get resolved, everyone will benefit.
Just my take.


"why the ilecs like Verizon and AT&T are pushing the concept of IPTV and Fiber to the Premise or Fiber to the Curb."

Andy I think you have this flipped. The reason the Comcasts, Verizons, etc will never willingly build out the broadband capacity that you enjoy in Europe and Asia is because they don't want to devalue their future investment in their Fiber networks. As a VZ shareholder I'm cool with that. As a an investor in a P2P streamer I'm pissed.
