You don't get fiber directly to your house, the expense of doing that kind of build out is just too high. So, they lay fiber to the local DSLAM, and then use vdsl to bridge the 'last mile' from the DSLAM to your house.

Me. I've just had vsdl service installed, which utilizes QWest's FTTN(Fiber To The Node) service. The DSLAM is about 2 blocks away from my house. I'm getting 20mbit down/5 mbit up. It's awesome. I see it as the future of DSL, simply bridging the last mile problem from fiber nodes.

Journal Journal: ATI cards, widescreen displays, Ugh.

Hate the panning in games on widescreen displays. Why is it so hard for ATI to support the option to scale the image to the laptop widescreen LCD, while maintaining the aspect ratio? Nvidia does, it's starting to drive me batty. Makes me wish I'd chosen an nvidia graphics chipset for my laptop, despite the drop in performance.

Going the speed of light is bad for your age.
