re: AT&T Sets Copper Ethernet Course
Funny you should put it that way, because Aktino is always on my case about forgetting them whenever I mention Actelis and Hatteras. (A tip of the cap here to ANDA, whose name didn't get into the story.)

I'm willing to believe that. Aktino would tell you about the "secret sauce" they add to the system, but you may be absolutely right.

Their best hope, assuming AT&T really does like their technology, is to find a big partner or buyer ASAP.

re: AT&T Sets Copper Ethernet Course
Craig,

What is it with your love affair with Aktino?

The bottom line is that at&t has two incumbent vendors for EoCu and neither of them is Aktino. at&t also clearly sees that the MIMO capability is being incorporated by the chip vendors as they move towards the symmetric VDSL2 standard in mid G«÷08. AktinoG«÷s efforts are nothing but a short lived science experiment that will be shortly available from all the key modem suppliers.

Well, sure. Every single company that calls is "working" us. And those that don't get mentioned call the loudest (figuratively).

re: AT&T Sets Copper Ethernet Course
Hi Craig,
I am sure that Aktino calls you to complain about your coverage. Why?..they are "working you" my friend. From my perspective they do an outstanding job at "creating" news. Do they really have ANY customers? ANY revenue? ANY partners? and they do not appear to have made to short list at AT&T. So where is the news about Aktino?
Funny and

re: AT&T Sets Copper Ethernet Course

... copper is such a stupid bet. FIOS is already dropping 100 meg with plenty of upside.

Why invest into a second tier technology on 60 year old copper. Dumb.

re: AT&T Sets Copper Ethernet Course
ATT does not want to provide residential broadband. It cheapens their "service" too much. Now that they have monopoly status over much of the nation again, they can sink billions of dollars into a second-rate infrastructure, and become "too big to fail". Users will be stuck with a narrowband pipe again.

I guess someone forgot to tell Time Warner, Comcast, etc. that they are out of the equation...?

re: AT&T Sets Copper Ethernet Course
Good point, Steve. How about douopoly. Cable will be a thorn in their side. I suspect they will continue to resort to big RNC donations and legal attacks (like the local franchising deal or the repeal of "net neutrality" in two years) to try and contain cable, or profit from third party content.

However, anyone who puts copper in the last mile cannot be interested in providing residential broadband. This part is no mystery.

I would suggest that this depends on your definition of "broadband". There is a DSL technology that can deliver 400MB/s over standard twisted pair. Is that fast enough for now? By the way I've patented it.

re: AT&T Sets Copper Ethernet Course

Stephen,

3 comments.

1 - I assume you mean 400 Mb/s not 400 MB/s(Megabits not MegaBytes).

2 - What "standard twisted pair"? I assume you mean Cat 3 wiring.

3 - Over what reach and with what impairments?
