I assume these writers obtained their information from legitimate sources, but regardless, it appears AT&T’s new FFTN (Fiber to the Node) service may be rolling out within the area here before years end. Actually, I’ll give some inside info I found out about recently as well: I was working on getting an internet connection setup and secured for someone I know and I logged into their DSL modem and the down speed cap said 6008 mbps down / 768 up. The maximum possible on the download was 7400 mbps. And they weren’t really close to the phone company’s CO which makes me think it is turned on already (they also possess the newest 2wire modem). Regardless, they’re getting ready to roll out an awesome service that should be pretty stable and fast. I’m excited!
