Re: Except when they're underseas...
@mhh: I'd take a more conservative approach and invest in long-term, non-tech holds like Coca-Cola. That's a market that's hard to disrupt. People still put stuff in their mouths and bellies.

Re: Except when they're underseas...
I've discovered some strange and unexpected things in my sofa cushions, but... I'm guessing I don't have any gold coins or hard drives with early bitcoins in them. Even if I did, it wouldn't add up to billions anyway.

Re: Except when they're underseas...
Sure, you personally have billions hidden in the sofa cushions (right?).

> "Would you consider investing in fiber if you had the option?"

You mean.. if *I* personally had billions to spend on anything I wanted? Wow. I guess I'd probably copy Elon Musk and plan to launch hundreds of nanosats into LEO to create a wireless mesh network of broadband connectivity... that way I'd avoid having to pay for the rights of way to lay fiber.....

But if I already owned the telephone poles..

Re: Except when they're underseas...
Interesting!

Would you consider investing in fiber if you had the option?

Except when they're underseas...
Fiber seems to last forever on land (except when there are saboteurs), but undersea cables seem to be vulnerable to various kinds of damage.

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.

Today’s access network architecture is under mounting pressure due to a continued surge in the number of connected devices, a proliferation of bandwidth-intensive customer applications and dramatic shifts in usage patterns related to the pandemic, such as work-from-home and e-learning.

Learn why now is the right time for cable operators to build greenfield networks or expand their existing networks with 10G PON, arming customers with high-speed symmetrical broadband. Gain a clear understanding of the drivers impacting the access network and the various approaches being considered to deliver higher speed services. Plus, find out the best practices that operators are employing as they leverage the latest in passive optical technology to future-proof their networks.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Node + 0 (Fiber Deep)
  • DOCSIS 3.1, DOCSIS 4.0 (FDX/ESD)
  • FTTP and 10G PON
  • XGS-PON, NG-PON2
  • Provisioning 10G PON within a DOCSIS B/OSS environment
