you're not going to find any 40GB capable CPE now or in the foreseeable future that's going to be affordable for the residence.
If we continue along orders of magnitude, sure it's foreseeable.
* 30 years ago, 300 baud was the bomb :-) * 3000 baud was roughly 2400bps days * 30000 baud gets us to ~28.8k * 300000 baud was about 2 ISDN lines (2x128k) * 3000000 baud is about typical cable these days (3m)
That puts us about another 4 orders of magnitude (3 if you count FTTP/etc generally available enough to count 30m as "now") away from 30G to CPE.
I'm sure there are more accurate timelines :-)
