Good for some
This is a rerun of the ADSL roll-out, and I've heard it all before.
Yes, I could use more, but will the ISPs be able to provide the total capacity. Better contention ratios would be more help at the moment.
About two-thirds of the line between me and the exchange would be replaced by fibre, which I'd certainly notice. It's the rest, between the kerbside box and my house, where the faults seem to happen.
Right now, "op to 8 megabits" is a risible claim. Get this tech rolled out, and a faster service might be worth paying for. But how many people need the speed for anything other than file sharing?
