It's fibre to the node, and then DSL. I got in on FIBE TV when I was the first person in my condo to do so....IT WAS AWSOME.
As soon as other signed up, it got shit fast.
I absolutely hate the TV interface and lack of any quality on Demand programming.
I have since moved, and gave FIBE a shot at my new place. The TV sucked worse as they have a habit of periodically deleting PVR's.
Internet is still good, so now I have Rogers TV and Bell internet. I think I am as happy as I can be in this country.
It's a good set-up because FIbe uses IP for everything, so if you are downloading a torrent and watching a HD program, something has to give as there isnt enough bandwidth.
