Japan Times article on increasing FTTH use in Japan

Japan Times article on increasing FTTH use in Japan

In the U.S., some web sites and publications question whether FTTH (fiber to the home) is for real. Meanwhile, in Japan, publications are publishing comparisons of different carriers' FTTH service plans. (Here's one article in English from the Japan Times.)

Clearly Tokyo Electric (a large power utility and FTTH provider), NTT (Japan's incumbent telco) and Japan's current 347,000 FTTH subscribers have not gotten the word from naysayers in the U.S. that FTTH is just dream. The rate of growth in FTTH subscribers in Japan is over twice that of DSL users.
