I called today to renew my 6 month loyalty discount and asked if there was any update on offering gigabit internet. The helpful loyalty department rep was pleased as punch to let me know they were offering gigabit throughout a wider area... so I started commenting on DOCSIS vs. FTTP and confused the hell out of her!

Looks like they're scrapping the failed FTTP/FTTH experiment in favour of the Rogers approach... and charging the same rate as they are for symmetric FTTP... that disappointed me, as the upstream speed is a max. of 30 mbps. Meh...
