Pretty sure that's FTTH. Notice there isn't any "v" near fiber :p

So they are deploying FTTH in Chennai? or is it like mine where you live in an apartment already with FTTH?

Since your VDSL was stable at 100Mb sync, give them a call and ask them. ;)

Yep. They are doing FTTH in some areas, new sites perhaps. I have tried countless times to upgrade my speeds but to no avail.



I guess I already have an answer to that as they have capped my line rate now to 45 Mbps despite being stable at 100 and 65 Mbps previously.

Hmm... in other words its still the same, except for people with FTTH in Chennai can now opt for 100Mbps, the rest all get usual up to 40Mbps.

I went from 49 Mbps to 42 Mbps. I don't mind the speed caps as long the connection remain stable to be a backup :)

Guys this is FTTH . In blore near my house they have laid fibre and installed new poles with FTTH box. We never had dsl line from Airtel. On asking the team installing fibre said that this is greenfield project to counter FTTH cable operators and Jio. He also mentioned this being part of project leap of Airtel . Work will/ started in major cities and all lines will be transported to FTTH for future readiness
