Canadian, eh?

Re: Fairpoint, Qwest, Frontier, small telcos interested ?

Many modern / urban cities won't care about DSL technologies if there is something higher capacity already in place.

Eg. US/Canadian/European/Asian cities typically have cable deployed which is already more than capable.
Rural areas (where cable won't reach) 'could' use this technology IF the following would work:

a) Distances can become MUCH longer
b) Cost is minimal to deploy
c) There is a requirement to deploy (for telcos)

Many other countries would probably look to wireless infrastructure for deployment.
With the exception of greenfield - I don't think there's much digging going on outside of FiOS deployments in the US.
