Wow, very modern - Ethernet-To-The-Home.
This is common here, nobody uses xDSL. I have Ethernet here from 2007.

I guess you (i.e. your city) was able to skip DSL altogether because the
infra-structure was late in coming? Fibre is slowly becoming available
here too, but so far only in the cities. The DSL speeds go to 20Mbps,
but that's on copper.

Awww, you are way behind the times! *We* have 24Mbps on copper!

But you will only get this if you live on top of the telephone exchange!

Look at this graph for example:

This is why, in the UK, there are complaints about false advertising about what you get for what you pay.

Here in Australia people have yet to wake up.

But the newly elected government here has promised to deliver on a new fibre optic system (NBN) to every home. Pictures at 11pm, in 20 years......
