The backend is still symmetric. It's still something like 1.25 gigs up and 2.5 gigs down. You can only beat that going to AE.

Not a very informative discussion.
Points of fact...
>From Verizon's January filings regarding 2014Q4:
1. Verizon has about eight million FIOS customers.
2. "Fifty-nine percent of FiOS consumer Internet customers subscribed
to data speeds of at least 50Mbps, up from 46 percent one year earlier."
>From a Verizon press release last summer, all FIOS speeds are now
ADSL development proceeded the development of the consumer Internet. The
original patent was filed in 1988. DSL was designed originally to deliver
video in an ISDN/ATM world. For that reason, it was asymmetric.
