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 some real-life results based on end-user reports, from NL

Though the site is dutch, the graphs speak for themselfs.
Clearly, any subscription while living more than 3km from the local
exchange, is a waste of money (unless you have no alternative)

Biggest telco around here is succesfully obstructing any other players
around here, who might be introducing ftth.
