Re: FTTN and FTTN-BP?

This might be a stupid question but just curious. Lets say a VRAD can support 500 single line service.(I know it will never happen ) but...lets say everyone on this vrad is on pair bonding...does that mean that only 250 customers can use the vrad? If so wouldn't it be more cost effective for att to use FTTP for people farther away from the vrad?

I know VRADs that have over 600 customer out of them

But yes, pair bonded customers take 2 VRAD ports, whereas a single pair customer takes only 1 VRAD port

More VDSL2 Cards & Shelves can be added to the VRADs, and if more Cabinet space is needed, most of the cabinets can be "twinned"/have a second installed right next to it

No. Fiber is expensive to run. The copper is already there. (and in many places has been for decades.)
