E comes before F

by Lorne Mitchell on 09/07/2010

Just as Ethernet comes before Fibre in the alphabet, I can’t help but think that rather than debate the merits of FTTH, FTTC, FTTX etc. we should be debating about:

Ethernet to the Home
Ethernet to the Small Business Park
Ethernet to the School
Ethernet to the Pub
Ethernet to the Fridge
etc.

If we put more emphasis on providing Ethernet to the Community….or ETTC and let the Fibre follow the demand for Ethernet services, then that would be a much easier model to rally around. The technology could then be pulled by the increasing demand for Ethernet services.

After all, E comes before F!
