Be Very Afraid of VDSL

If you think carriers are concerned about cablecos moving into the telephony business, perhaps the cable boys should be afraid of new technology that will let carriers offer digital television. Apparently, Ikanos Communications and Metalink have chip sets that will push VDSL deployments to 100 Mb/s and beyond. If you think about it, high-definition TV requires network speeds of about 18Mb/s. If this technology works, the carrier-cable battle is going to get nasty.
