Why do some hosts advertise they have such great bandwidth and then come to find out they're hosting off of some copper lines?
Was speaking with a local host earlier this week who has 70-100MBps coming into their facility for their internet service side of the business and he was putting us down. Then come to find out, they have copper sprint lines coming in. Wow! Now I can easily turn around and put him down! woo!
Why would folks even consider going copper anymore? Break the bank and put in a fiber drop!
Fiber also takes more terminating skill, anyone can do a Cat5, terminating Fiber isn't so easy - well, if you want a decent termination it's not. Installation considerations such as bend radius etc. etc. to consider.
Don't get me wrong, Fiber is great, it's pretty much the future for nearly all coms, but just not for 100%.
