Verizon's FIOS just started offering 20 megs symmetrical. That means 20 megs upload and 20 megs download.
Ok...its time for the cable guys to get off their horse, look at DOCSIS and say "we have fiber. Let's go to the home." If they do, speeds can go higher than what Verizon is offering because Verizon is using DOCSIS with back end support from Big Band Networks..
On the other hand their is AT&T selling their ill-conceived UVERSE offering a whopping 6 megs down, and some speed up. This is really nothing more than DSL updated, as the network to most homes mirrors how DSL was installed, thus eventually speeds drop. Well I guess that's better than what happened over the weekend to UVERSE. A national outage. Well their IPTV platform is based on Microsoft Windows technology so likely it was a weekly patch being applied that required a re-boot.
