It's unfair to compare VZ FIOS with Japanese fiber, as VZ is also a LTE company with mobile as its driving focus. Except for google, apparently, nobody cares about FTTH service. The returns just aren't there.
Come to think of it, if these carriers indeed 'do not care' about FTTH, then why are these same indifferent carriers up-in-arms the second any muni FTTH project is proposed?
I thought it's useless and they're not interested in it... However, they always turn around and spend millions lobbying and suing our government, to ensure their profit margins stay in tact.
