AT&T brings 500Mbps home Internet to cities outside its territory [telecom]

AT&T's available to apartment buildings in 8 major cities.

Major home Internet providers in the US don't typically expand into each other's territory, but this week, AT&T said it is launching high-speed Internet in parts of New York City and other major metro areas outside of its traditional wireline footprint.


AT&T's new deployment uses, a technology that relies on fiber deployments into neighborhoods and copper wires to make the connection inside each building. But instead of old phone lines, AT&T said it is using coaxial cables to make the final connection to consumers.

If the coaxial cables AT&T is planning to use are 75-Ohm types intended for cable TV, the RG-59Ethernet converters lying on a shelf in my basement might come in handy after all. ;-)
