THIRD PIPE://Benefiting from having less or better legacy infrastructure

TeleGeography reports Electropaulo plans a PLC (BPL) trial, after three years of testing. During that period, data rates increased to 200 Mbps from 45.

Some remarks:
  • Third pipes are coming to life. J-COM and StarHub are doing pre-DOCSIS 3.0. BPL and DOCSIS are forcing VDSL services upon telcos - or FTTH, for that matter.
  • In some cases, non-western operators seem to have the advantage of not having too much legacy infrastructure.
