    So even though it's FTTH, seeing as it's Telus it'll probably still disconnect for an hour every 48 or so :\

    When is Shaw FTTH getting here? XD

    Pretty sure Shaw uses Telus's existing fiber anyway.

    Sure hope my new home being built right now in Cranston has this. I know it has the structured wiring, but hope it has the fiber drop in place.

    Ahaha, no. Shaw has many kilometers of fiber bundles to their nodes, along with a SONET ring between their hubsites. Look up Shaw's Bigpipe coverage in town, or have a peek at http://www.shawbusinesssolutions.ca/...etwork_map.jsp

    That all looks like backbone, I was talking about last mile. I could still be wrong but I was under the impression that Telus has been laying fiber in communities for years.

    Telus has been doing this for at least the last year or two. It was discussed in the Shaw FTTH thread. Even though they have fiber in many homes only some communities are able to get the service. Currently I have fiber in my house with no idea of when it is scheduled to light up. Hopefully this service will offer lower latency and better ping consistency. I won't be switching unless they improve their bandwidth options. 25/1 is pitiful for fiber service, and compared to other FTTH offerings is way below par. It's not even competative locally, where Shaw is offering 100/5.

    "I" believe that trenching/termination, generally are shared joint venture capital projects that envision often are the hands and feet.

    It's more about HDTV than Internet right now and not running copper to homes. Shaw HDTV is ok but there's still some problems and their on screen menu looks and feels like it's from the 80s.

    "Whoever gets fiber to the home - with good HDTV - will scoop the customers. Gentlemen, start your engines."

    "call in to 310 mytv and say that you have fiber run to your home when you speak with a care agent... that might be all it takes..."
