10 Gig - repeat, 10 gig - to 800K apartments in Hong Kong
10 Gig - repeat, 10 gig - to 800K apartments in Hong Kong: "Soon, the cost to the telco for 10 gigabits will be little different than the cost of ten megabits. 1 gig service over fiber costs the carrier very little more than 10 or 100 megabits. Equipment going in today is almost all ready for a gig. There's rarely any savings using obsolete gear that tops out at lower speeds. PCCW's Hong Kong telco has now upped the ante, bringing a ten gig - presumably XGPON - to all 800,000 fiber customers. Trials have begun and they expect to cover nearly all 800K by the end of 2015.
