Bonded DSL Ring Technology

An article in the business section of today's Calgary Herald featured a Calgary based company that has developed a new technology that Telco's are interested in that could deliver similar benefits to a FIOS system without the exorbitant capital investment needed to accomplish that. Can't post a link to the article as its a members digital copy of the paper. However, here's the link to that company's website. They claim to be able to get 400Mb/s of bandwidth.

Interesting, but keep in mind it is only 200 Mbps up and 200 Mbps down, and shared between a number of households. That's far less bandwidth than a true FIOS FTTP system. It is a closer competitor to cablevision than to FIOS.

There is a more detailed .pdf presentation here. It even mentions "Saskachewan Province Canada" (sp).

Yes technut it is very interesting. It suggests to me that a rapid rollout of HDTV by Telco's is possible with a potential sharp market penetration by the Telco's. Previously, it seemed that a massive investment (even more than they have already invested) was necessary to truly compete with the cable and satco's.

From the presentation I linked, it looks like this is what SaskTel is using now for their IPTV service.
