The article discusses two challenges namely DSL 2+ and Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) for Internet telephone firms. Better techniques are on the drawing board of telephone companies. Roughly half of the homes in the U.S. are attached to telco loops of about 12,000 feet. At that distance, DSL 2+ can move bits to homes at about 6 Megabyte per second. That is plenty lot video, even without advanced compression. The IPTV is a vast nomenclature for sending of video over IP based networks, such as DSL. Microsoft Corp. is a huge proponent of the technology.
