This paper examines the evolutionary potential of hybrid fiber coaxial systems for new services. It is shown that the cost of building dual (or 'overlay') cable TV and telecom networks is higher than adding telephony to a cable TV network on the hybrid fiber coax principle. It is shown that other services including Ethernet access to the Internet can also be added at low incremental cost. The potential of modems carrying ATM traffic to carry an even wider range of services is also considered.
