Actually not true. AT&T under Ed, back under SBC during Project Lightspeed did rebuild and replace copper with Fiber Optic direct to the homes. It was done in the Ameritech region and one areas is Carlton Michigan which is in Monroe County. Other areas have the same in Wisconsin. The copper also was removed and its direct FTTH some areas are complete FTTH some are mixed. but was rebuilt.

That is news, to me. Everything I read about SBC Project Lightspeed said that FTTH was only in "greenfield" communities, and everything else was FTTN. I was given a couple of examples from Pacific Telesis and Southwestern Bell.

the SBC region PacBell, SNET and BS were treated differently. Ameritech was the only region that seen this. It was to combat munis and it worked. The only downside is the FTTH network has the same speeds as the VDSL network. The FTHH network was/is designed with 2Wire/Pace products. Even the ONTs and the gateway/router. Depending on if you have IP-DSL or U-Verse VDSL depends on if you get the 2Wire or a Mot.
