Re: Another idea for cutting down costs for fiber in the north..

I am pretty sure I have read in more than one place that Fairpoint isn't expanding fiber. They are just leaving it where it was when they took over.

That is correct: They have said repeatedly (in interviews with me at the Nashua Telegraph, and in many other places) that they are not expanding fiber-to-the-home because they're counting on ADSL (over copper) as their broadband option for the future.

Of course they are using existing FTTH, and using the fiber backbone that Verizon installed, but they are not rolling out bucket trucks with fiber optic cables.
