Yes, it did!
What you describe is what I understand as "old" plant. Rebuilt is
bi-directional and head-end/hub distributed rather than using
head-end/branched/repeated. I believe almost all municipalities that
contract CATV insist on it and I have heard that most plant built (or
rebuilt) since the early 80's is bi-d.
BTW where is it written there is a set bandwidth available for data... I
hear everything from 2 channels to 30 MHZ....
I think saying that is silly. Another case of wont-dont implying cant.
Though, in the past, I have brought the subject up...I think this is getting
a little removed from the issue of cold-feet telco's.
