FTTH

Fibre-To-The-Home (commonly abbreviated FTTH) is a new ultra high-speed internet service which will be significantly faster than the current DSL, T1 and other high-speed internet offerings.

Speeds will vary based on the underlying infrastructure and usage, but Bell Aliant, for example, guarantees 20MBps download and 5MBps upload rates (as compared to 5MBps download and 1MBps upload rates in their best currently available high-speed offering).
