Qwest's FTTN Services

Qwest in the U.S. announced two new data services for its VDSL FTTN roll out:
  • 12 Mbps at $49.99 per month
  • 20 Mbps at $99.99 per month
The two new services will be offered in 23 markets across 10 states.

Qwest is using VDSL to offer a high speed service without IPTV. The 12 Mbps is high enough to easily support SD over the top Internet TV, and the 20 Mbps will support HD over the top Internet TV. Qwest should become a real testing ground for over the top Internet TV services. It will be interesting to see what develops from this.
