  1. Hi Doug, I don’t recall a blog post from you about the technical bandwidth issues of FTTN/DSL to be built by incumbents. That vectoring and Gfast are largely ineffective technologies for long loop lengths, etc. The incumbent LECs are banging the drum that CAF2 networks will solve the rural broadband issue. My perspective is that 10/1 is the new dialup. If you have already written about this, could you send a link or consider this for a post? Thanks.


    • I don’t know that I’ve complained about only this topic in a blog, but I have said how dumb the CAF II limits are in dozens of blogs. This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen the FCC do and it is a $9 billion boondoggle in giving money to the big telcos for no practical benefits in the real world. It’s probably worth another blog!
