…Time Warner Cable in Hawaii about their future plans for symmetrical 100Mbps connectivity in Hawaii. Unfortunately for residents, this is only being offered to those who have homes in the Hualalai Resort area, a luxury development on the Kona-Kohala Coast of West Hawaii. It’s the only instance I’ve seen where Time Warner Cable has opted for pure fiber, though you’re seeing cable operators embrace FTTH more and more for new developments. In this case it looks like Higgins gets symmetrical 100Mbps, while TC, Rick and Magnum get 8Mbps/1Mbps.

According to Cable Digital News, Time Warner Cable has issued a request for information (RFI) exploring next-generation fiber-to-the-home architectures, (like RF over Glass (RFOG), EPON, 10-Gig EPON) that allow them to run fiber to the home, while keeping their current head ends and cable modems. Before anyone gets too excited, cable carriers are largely only interested in these technologies for new higher-end “greenfield” developments like, say, in Hawaii luxury residences — or small businesses.

    Damon – Sorry about that Aaron. I wasn’t actively blogging then and did not realize that you had previously blogged about this. I should have figured you were on it! ;)
