Alcatel want to bring IPTV, Voice and HSD over 1 line to SA Homes

Found another interesting article on Business Day.  Alcatel has technology to allow up to 20MB/s over standard copper telephone wire.  That is awesome!  They are busy in negotiations (oh boy!?!) with Telkom about piloting their product called “Triple Play” in South Africa.  Triple Play allows IP telephony, High Speed Data and IPTV.  Let’s all hope Telkom are willing to let technology, and not greed, win in the end.  They are looking at the end of  2007 for implementation.  I suppose that’s better than the 2010 date for HDTV.
