Dave Burstein on SBC’s Project LightSpeed: SBC is selling satellite to 50% of their users -a fancy TIVO style set top and a slow DSL connection, and upgrading the rest to low profile VDSL2 they call fiber to the node. From the projected 2,000-5,000 feet, low profile VDSL2 is maybe 20 meg down, 1-3 meg up, most of which will be used for their video. They’ve slipped a year, with 2008 now the goal for 18 million homes completed out of their 30 something million home target. Sizzle!!! Ouch!
