Abstract
Today, it's not easy to find a telecommunications publication that doesn't have a feature article on fiber to the home. Not only do these articles appear in telecommunications publications but in newspapers like in the Wall Street Journal and USA Today. What concerns me about these articles is the immediate emphasis on CATV and video on demand services. Fiber is indeed a broadband transmission medium. However, from BellSouths point of view, the video services are not necessary to the economic equation for placing fiber to the subscriber. Our objective is to place fiber in the network for POTS like services first and upgrade the electronics based on customer demand.
