Verizon Prepares For G-PON With FIOS


Recommended Posts

Verizon has announced that it has finalized plans on the G-PON replacement for the current B-PON technology.  This has the potential to provide ridiculous speeds to each home.  Currently with B-PON it is 622 Mbits down split to 32 houses, and 155 Mbits up split to 32 houses.  With G-PON this will grow considerably to 2.488 Gbps down split to 32 houses, and 1.244 Gbps up split to 32 houses.  Obviously these speeds won't be actual internet speeds, but will allow Verizon to offer other various services to the house, such as possibly an all IPTV based video system.  For complete information, read here: http://www.broadcastnewsroom.com/articles/viewarticle.jsp?id=53332

This is really cool, and will be fun to watch.
