Re: Should have done FTTH from the start.
said by jandar1:That is what I am wondering.
They went FTTN in some new neighborhoods around here that have fiber laid to the homes. Its just dark.
Instead of using the fiber to the residence, they decided to use the copper lines instead.
Are they actually going to physically run a copper wire vs. Fiber to each home? Cost of running Fiber cannot be that much greater than digging up and running copper.
The weekend is here, grab a can of beer!
A lot of the new neighborhoods around here (built in last 5-6 years) had both fiber buried under each driveway as well as copper lines run for both cable and phone.
Hell, I had dark fiber here before they even offered DSL. Then instead of working with the available fiber, Bellsouth decided to install a DSLAM to provide 1.5Mb speeds. (this was 4 years ago)
