Should we make 4mb a cap for all connections? How about for backbone connections? How about 4mb max for a connection for a town or city? How about a 4mb limit to hook up schools,?
All this does is justify their sticking with DSL in many markets. I won't go into the details, but best I can tell the reason
AT&T stuck with DSL was due to the union workers not wanting to deal with fiber. The reasons were:
1. They would not need as many workers to keep fiber running
2. LIghtning destroys copper (and creates more work).
I could add some annoyances like:
DSL could (and probably does) create RF hash and interference.
I don't do 4mb and lower unless I don't have a choice. Needless to say, AT&T is not going to be my choice until they actually
get a clue and start rolling out FTTH, like they could have done damn near 20 years ago.
