Detailed fiber to the home report for San Francisco


[Here is an excellent report, prepared for the city of San Francisco detailing various fiber to the X architectures for the city's internal needs as well as to the home. My only quibble is that as far as I can tell it does not do any analysis for micro-conduit which in my opinion provides the lowest up front cost, especially with low take up rates. Thanks to Dirk van der woude for this pointer on Gordon Cook's list -- BSA]
