Big Toronto-based cable, wireless and media company has started offering 1.5-Gig service as it deploys GPON-based fiber in 'strategic areas' and preps for DOCSIS 4.0 over its legacy HFC network.
Alaska operator says nearly 41% of its broadband subs are getting speeds of 1 Gbit/s, or four times the national adoption rate uncovered by a recent study from OpenVault.
A budget of $61 billion to $118 billion would enable the US to bring 1-Gig to all locations that get less than 100/20 Mbit/s service that aren't tied to RDOF phase I, ACA Connects/Cartesian study finds.
Satellite-powered broadband service provider is in talks with 'several' airlines about providing connectivity for in-flight W-Fi services.
As operators mull plans for future DOCSIS 4.0 deployments, many are considering expanding the upstream to 396MHz, a move that would deliver upstream speeds of about 3 Gbit/s, CommScope exec says.
