So anybody who's been following FTTH knows that wholesale services will start at $40 for a 30m/bit connection, and $60 for 100m/bit:

Question:
What do current ADSL connections wholesale for? Isn't it somewhere closer to $19?

It also still leaves the question of data caps, but I'll reserve speculation for now ;)

2Gb cap @ 100Mbs .... 'bout 1/2 an hour at full speed and you've reached your cap ... back to dial up ... :D

100m/bit = 12.5 megabytes per-second, provided you're only operating in half-duplex (Downloading).

2048MB / 12.5MBps = 163.84 second = 2.73 minutes to use your cap... But now I'm just being snotty :p

You don't think anyone is really going to tell you what the current wholesale rate is do you?

Commercially sensitive I would have thought.

Actually I agree with his maths - though I would point out that he's assuming that you can get 100% of the available theoretical maximum .. which you never because you get packet collisions, retransmissons etc

... that is if you really want to be pedantic .. :stare:

Windup ..... Just wanted to see how long it would take Chill to check his figures ... :D
