I been reading up a bit and see some company's are offer 100mbs down and 20mbs up on VDSL2+ using different profiles is MTS looking in to this? I see it's possible up too 200MBS on some profiles.
Interesting topic, and right up my alley! Theoretically you may reach as high as 100Meg, but in practice it tops out around 75, and the cable between the customer and the equipment (we call it the loop) needs to be shorter and shorter, and more picky on things like gauge, bridge tap, end tap, etc. In the 80's to 90's Telco's were using the lot of 26 gauge cable. Great for reducing costs to keep prices down, not so good for 21st century Broadband. At the time no one considered we'd be trying to push 30Mhz+ signals down those cables. It's a very complex formula when you start to combine signals in a cable, and vendors have developed new tools to help like VDSL2, vectoring, and G.FAST to get more bandwidth out of those copper cables, but without exception the tradeoff is reach. With ADSL we could go about 4km and still get 7Meg. VDSL we could get about 20Meg, but loop length had to be less than about 1.4km. We can get 28- 50Meg out of our VDSL 2 today, but limited to about a km, and sometimes we have to us 2 loops and two ports on the DSLAM. That's physics for you! That said, we are always trying to expand our toolbox and drive more bandwidth out to the customer!
Has MTS considered offering Lighting 100 on VSDL2+ using pair bonding where Lighting 50 is possible on a single pair? I would imagine the current cost alone would heavily limit interest but it could be a way of expanding service offerings without a big change in the backend gear.
