None of the existing telco proviers have provisioned for the future, their living for today's technology.
Gee's.....CATV couldn't even keep up with the deadline the FCC gave them back in 1997 or 1998 ensuring the ability to beat out the dish roll out. Now the Comcasts and Time Warners of the world are close to default on their franchise agreements and obligations to upgrade and provide dark fiber into the municipal bldgs. even more they can't even afford it.
Telco has a lot of fiber to put up to maintain the new video calls that will be deploying in the next 3-4 years and with today's markets they most likely not be rolling out anything soon. :(
My thanks goes out to Paul Allen for all the money he spent funding the overbuilds back from 1998-2002.

Telephone has been around for around 100 years and will be for another 100 :o

Go to a foreign country and take a look at the technology their laying out. Keep in mind it has to be a country such as Japan, Sweden, Germany, Australia and so on. Somewhat developed and moderately technical. Your going to see technology's that haven't even been built in America. Although it most likely was developed in our own backyard.
Sad isn't it?
So keep on rolling overbuilders and don't look back.

Our local CATV prvider has done 3 multi million dollar upgrades to there plant within the last 2 years and has brought technology to there customers that would otherwise never reach us if left up to the telcos.
