And that range makes it useless to most of us. I also wonder at what the supporting equipment will cost.Cioffi said high-frequency sub-millimetre waves can increase single-line data rates to terabits per second at 100 metre lengths on ordinary twisted pair phone wire.
“Speeds of 100 Gigabits/second can be achieved at distances over 300 metres, and speeds of 10 Gigabits/second can be achieved at distances over 500 metres,” said Cioffi.
Isn't the spec 1Gbps up to 100 meters, 10Gbps up to 55 meters? I'd be worried about cross-talk unless you use 6A (though I am not sure as I haven't seen ~20 Cat6 cables bundled over 50+ meters in the real world as you'd need to do if you wanted to roll out to peoples' houses).I would just gooi a Cat6 at those distances. Who needs a phone line anyway?
And by that time they stole the copper and sold it for scrap.And that range makes it useless to most of us. I also wonder at what the supporting equipment will cost.
The above is also if the copper quality is excellent, Telkom hasn't done much maintenance in regards to copper. Probably the same story as G.Fast
