Light Reading: "A Closer Look at PON Econ"

"It's been a month since word broke that U.S. RBOCs are soliciting bids for rollouts of new fiber access networks, many of them based on passive optical networking (PON) technology ... Now that the RFPs (requests for proposal) are in the equipment vendors' hands, though, some question whether all the hoopla could be misleading."

Interesting article by Mary Jander. The cost numbers shown for Bell FTTH costs look higher than what we're hearing for municipal FTTH these days; that may reflect the facts that most of these municipal projects are predominantly aerial and that the Bells have very high costs.
