Study: Ethernet cheaper way to deliver last mile

Scott Mace notes:
CNET : "Telephone companies could cut their operating costs by 23 percent a year by using Ethernet services in their metropolitan area networks instead of traditional telecommunications services." It's clear the jury is in on this. As the CNET story notes, some lingering technical issues must still be addressed. The bottom line: if traditional urban telco systems aren't willing to eagerly embrace Ethernet in the last mile, governments should apply existing regulatory levers to either force the changes. If they can't do that, they should just level the playing field by forcing open dry copper for competitors to fast-track their own last-mile Ethernets."
