I have Telus Fiber, but I don't use their TV service, so I'm not 100% sure of the answer to your question, but with a Fiber connection Telus would have no trouble offering 50 concurrent streams.kor123 said:1) The rep was saying I can get 4 HD streams + 1 SD stream ( we have 4 tv's) so not sure if being on fibre is giving that extra hd stream?
Yes. Telus over provisions the bandwidth to allow for TV streams while still being able to provide the quoted Internet bandwidth rates. Most people with Internet 100 on fiber seem to get ~130mbps when doing a speed test when the TV isn't using any of the bandwidth. Each TV stream should take ~5-6mbps.kor123 said:2) lets say I choose to go with Internet 100 - again being on fibre does that mean even if all tv's are on and assuming all watching hd streams will I still get the full 100 Mbps speeds while downloading or does it share the pool w/ the tvs?
I saw this post from a Telus Employee from 3 months ago on their community forum:I'm on Fiber and Telus won't give me Internet 100 because I'm not in a "converged edge" area. So, one does not imply the other.
You'd think that if Telus is doing FTTH that they'd always offer Internet 100, but apparently that isn't the case.
That implies 2 things:I am happy to share that we are in the midst of enabling IPv6 for eligible TELUS Internet subscribers. To be eligible you must be on our Converged Edge network (true of most TELUS Internet subscribers)...
1. Fibre is run to your home's interior demarc block, and at that location it will be connected to an Alcatel-Lucent fibre modem. That modem has a port that connects to your home phone system (if you are using Telus for your home phone service), and an ethernet port that connects via ethernet cable to the WAN port of your Actiontec router. The fibre modem needs to be plugged into a power outlet, so the location of a power outlet (rather than the current location of your home's demarc block) will determine where the fibre cable actually gets terminated in your home.1. Does the fibre come only to the demarc block and existing copper from there, or will they want to run fibre to the modem?
2. Since the house was pre-wired with phone wires and coax 30 years ago, I am using coax from the Actiontec to a second TV box (but Cat 5e to the main PVR). If they somehow can get fibre to the modem, is coax still an option to the second TV box?
