100 Mbps Coming to Videotron

Videotron is planning to introduce 100 Mbps cable modem service. Its 1.6 million subscribers make it the third largest cable company in Canada. This service will be based on new DOCSIS 3.0 technology. Videotron has not announced when this service will be available.

100 Mbps DOCSIS 3.0 puts cable modem services in fiber territory. The wide deployment of this technology will leave FTTN VDSL deployments at 25 Mbps in the dust. 100 Mbps DOCSIS 3.0 is a killer technology that only Verizon in the U.S. is prepared to counter. ATT will be in big trouble when this technology is widely deployed in its territory.
