State of the copper?

So guessing these lab trials have brand new copper between two nodes and with no cross talk, dodgy crimps and so on?

I would love to see what speeds you get when deployed in the real world. I guess those on the west island will find out in about 5 years when it might get deployed.

One would think that with that massive bill to remeditate the local copper loop, you should just put in some fiber instead?
