Poll of Lightwave readers reveals skepticism about Bells' fiber plans

Poll of Lightwave readers reveals skepticism about Bells' fiber plans

An unscientific on-line poll of visitors to Lightwave's web site showed (as of the time of this posting) a majority were skeptical of the Bells' announcement that they would finally get serious about rolling out FTTH (fiber to the home):

"Are the RBOCs serious about pursuing fiber to the premises?"

"Yes -- and deployments will start as soon as next year": 14%
"Yes -- but deployments won't begin until 2005 at the earliest": 25%
"Maybe -- but only in a very limited fashion": 50%
"No -- it's just a smoke screen": 11%

Lightwave is a trade magazine for the fiber optics industry.
