"It makes me wonder how long their copper wire was......"
10Gbps requires 2 pairs and works a maximum distance of 30 Meters
2Gbps requires 1 pair and works a maximum distance of 70 Meters
Its intended use is for the curb to residence connection for fiber systems in lieu of digging up the yard to bury fiber all the way to the house.
How does that solve the problem of bringing high speed to the "curb" which is what the problem with DSL has been all along?
Something smells a little bit like smoke and mirrors
I could get DSL at any speed although 2 houses up the street did have it.
So I went with cable and now I have 100 Mb download and 10Mb upload.
Still not excited for 10Gb over copper at a distance of 30 meters.
