Twisted pair is certantly "legacy".

Is there a feeling that coax cable/DOSCIS is also "legacy" in terms of
current capacity/speeds ? Or is that technology still considered viable
against FTTH ?

I realise that business practices make north american incumbents
undesirable compared to the rest of the world, especially Comcast's
dirty tricks with Netflix as an example.

But in terms of the last mile technology and wiring (for instance, homes
per HFC node) sre north american cavlecos up to par with the rest of the
world ?
