DSLA2011 Telus: Trying to convince users what up-to-100Mbps cable actually means would be a waste of time. Compete on services, not bandwidth. DSLA2011 TP: FTTH/B is future, but relies on high capex and regulation is unclear. Working on hybrid FTTx/DSL to push fiber closer to customers. DSLA2011 Telus: At some point with deepening DSL acceleration, your costs per customer would exceed GPON FTTH rollout costs. DSLA2011 Telus: VDSL2 covering largest 24 markets or 85% of total network footprint. 75% of those can get 26Mbps. The challenge is the 25%.  DSLA2011 Telus: Next up, vectoring. Has already delivered line-bonding in the east and working to deploy in the west.  DSLA2011 Telus: Vectoring and line-bonding means we could deploy 0.4x as much fibre as the current base case. GPON would need 4x as much. DSLA2011 Telus: Challenges w bonding: We’re running out of ports. Do we add new DSLAMs, add costly DRAs, etc.? Or FTTH be more efficient? DSLA2011 Assia: Conducting studies that show that 50-70% of vectoring gains can be made in an LLU env if all ISPs are “polite” and use DSM.

DSLA2011 ZTE: Ops used to think copper opex was huge, but some now suggest gap with FTTH/B opex is not as great as originally thought. DSLA2011 Regulatory factors mean that incumbents will have to maintain copper, so while FTTH might reduce opex, copper opex won’t go away. DSLA2011 Does the DSLA case add up? W. so many steps -VDSL-CO, FTTC, vectoring, bonding, DSM, g.Fast, etc.- will it cost more than FTTH/B?
