I find the name itself misleading, Fiber Optic -- Optik? It's sneaking marketing.

They don't bluntly say it's fiber in advertising though? Bell does this. Sure Bell might have fiber to the remote, but from there to the house is still old copper wire of questionable quality.

Anyways, glad to see it's working well for you and you get some pretty awesome speeds.

Do you have a XBOX360 on it too? I think Telus was doing some tech demos with XBOXs for IPTV?
