So,it will be the same speed for the same money,the only good reason to switch to optic fiber is what? Latency ? They will install a better router at my house that will be better,with bigger wi-fi speed ? ( N protocol instead of the slower b/g)

The top speed for home users will be 160 Mbps,at 90 .Way too much
The " 1 GB" speed will be only for business users

So i don't see any big improvement for the home user,regarding the internet speed,by switching to optic fiber

It is stated here that 100 Mbps is faster than 20 Mbps (obviously)
But it doesn't say that i will be upgraded for free from 20 to 100 when i will switch from ADSL to optic fiber (i don't think so),or i must buy the 100 Mbps package (90)

So,in the end,we gonna get a bit better latency,which i don't know how important is for the average user. If anyone has more info or can explain me better all this,please do so. Thanks

The use of the internet is only going to increase leading to slower speeds as 'traditional' copper wires get more and more clogged.

Also, fibre is more reliable than copper. It withstands damage from shock and weathering better than copper.

If you wish to keep your (up to) 20 mb/s but want a better wifi signal, piggyback a wifi access point onto the back of your router.

Unfortunately, there may well be little difference between the signal received from an older 802.11g wifi connection and the newer 802.11n and 802.11ax protocols - the first operates in the 2.4 GHz & 5GHz bands and the latter in the 5GHz only, but signals weakened by passing (or attempting to pass) through barriers such as solid walls and concrete flooring.
