    Red face So who will have 100Mbps 1st? Singtel VDSL2 or Starhub Cable?

    SINGAPORE, June 26 (UPI) -- Singapore's SingTel will become the first Asia broadband operator to deploy VDSL2 broadband when it launches a trial network.

    The VDSL2 (Very-high-bit-rate Digital Subscriber Line 2) developed by Ericsson will provide access speeds that Ericsson said could reach 100 megabits per second over SingTel's existing copper lines.

    The speeds will make it possible to offer customers "triple-play" voice, video and data over existing customer premises equipment.

    I wonder which other country uses VDSL too. Btw, there's VDSL2 with a max of 250mb/s.
    ADSL-like long reach (LR) performance: ADSL-like long reach performance is one of the key advantages of VDSL2. LR-VDSL2 enabled systems are capable of supporting speeds of around 1-4 Mbit/s (downstream) over distances of 4 to 5 km, gradually increasing the bit rate up to symmetric 100Mbit/s as loop-length shortens. This means that VDSL2-based systems, unlike VDSL1 systems, are not limited to short loops or MTU/MDUs only, but can also be used for medium range applications.
    Found this on wiki:
    In Singapore, SingTel tied up with Sony Ericsson to deploy a technical trial of VDSL2 starting June 2006. No service plans announced as of yet.

    Pacnet just have to hope people prefer wimax instead. Their current ADSL and cable hopeless against VDSL.
