Re: Ugh The Whining
Not totally true. As I pointed out before, AT&T under Ed in the Ameritech region did just that in some areas under Project Lighspeed to test FTTH. The copper is GONE and no CLECs nor other ISPs are allowed on it. You get FTTH U-Verse at U-Verse VDSL speeds and that's it. No other options available unless you want to pay a CLEC to build out a T1 for you, which is not really an option with cost. Monroe County Michigan is one area that has FTTH that was gutted copper, and Wisconsin has a couple as well. The pilot wasn't expanded very far.
