We signed up with Telus and couldn't be happier. Love the interface...and we got a free xbox slim to boot!!!Is this similar to Telus OPTIK? Cause I got to check that out a while ago and damn that was a sexy and responsive UI. It made Rogers digital look and feel stoneage by comparison.
I went and did me some googlin' but all I found was conflicting information from various "sources" at Bell. I can however, tell you it looks really good! Let us know if you manage to find a definitive answer.talks a lot about internet performance, but i dont see much about TV bitrate and technical specs
I agree that fibre is the way to go in terms of being able to handle almost any bandwidth conceivable but don't think that Rogers wouldn't run fiber to their own headends (if they haven't already done so) in order to start competing. The last mile will likely still continue to be copper or coax and that's our limitation until better CPEs (customer premise equipment) are developed that will allow us to have 100 or 1000Mbps connections to the headend.just think to yourselves quality nazis: what service has best future capacity for quality?
Satellites have limitations, as does Rogers/Cisco cable systems - far less limitations are active with fibre services.
I imagine that overtime we'll see more fibre competitors here but its pretty obvious, even if the quality is only marginally better or the same as what's out there - fibre is the way of the future and the service most able to expand to greater capacities for higher bitrates over time.
As headends and signal delivery expands to utilize the extra space in fibre we'll see many gains over the next decade I'm sure.
