But the important point here is that the future is fiber not copper.  The only way you'll ever see anything approaching Gbps broadband is with fiber.  I keep reading all these post from people who keep touting the future of cable and it makes me laugh.  Comcast and the other cable providers will never be able to eclipse the speeds of fiber to the home.
