Abstract
The authors review data from cost analyses of fiber loop networks. It is argued that fiber in the local loop will provide cost-effective transport of services to about the T1 rate, making videophone and similar video services attractive and cost-effective in the near term. In contrast, it is suggested that fiber networks will not provide cost competition with coaxial cable TV networks for five to ten years.
