Light Reading: "Carriers Give FTTP Update"

"Las Vegas -- The three big incumbent phone companies behind the industry's largest fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) proposal -- Verizon Communications Inc., BellSouth Corp., and SBC Communications Inc. -- expect to have vendor equipment in their labs for trials by November 14, the carriers said here Tuesday. BellSouth and SBC will start first office application (FOA) trials during the second half of 2004, the carriers say. Verizon says its FOA trials will start during either the second or third quarter of 2004."

"The carriers narrowed down their shortlist of prospective suppliers in August, and each began individual negotiations with suppliers this month. Only BellSouth and SBC are working together on the business aspect of the FTTP deal, according to Peter Hill, VP of technology planning at BellSouth."
