In recent years, there is growing interest in hybrid fiber-copper access solutions, as in fiber to the basement (FTTB) and fiber to the curb/cabinet (FTTC), combined with advanced vectored transmission modalities. The twisted pair segment in these architectures is in the range of a few hundred meters, thus supporting transmission over up to 30 MHz. In this paper, we assess the capacity potential of these very short loops using full-binder channel measurements collected by France Telecom R&D. Key statistics are provided for both uncoordinated and vectored transmission, and the vectoring benefit is evaluated. The results provide useful bounds for developers and providers alike.
