Verizon's Fiber to the Home - Yesterday's Architecture

While SBC raises rates in Wisconsin for a long since paid for copper network, Verizon pushes forward with fiber to the home. David Isenberg notes that they are installing broadband fiber with speeds up to 60Mbps; that's over 60X the speed of my DSL line. Isenberg also notes that Verizon may have chosen a difficult to scale architecture (that 60Mbps may be set for decades...)

Wisconsin politicians evidently continue to drink SBC's Kool-Aid, as there's no evidence of progress here.
