Re: Lots of reasons to invest in FTTP....
How do you see Verizon plan of just doing 5g in Boston Ma and not using the FiOS as a way to provide those customers a better video and data service? Do you think it not a smart move to put everything into just the 5g basket, and hope those customers have a need for that form of service and the price of the data plan's? I think if Verizon does not provide something to Boston then will be looking for a new company to help the need for best service for those people.

logic of G.fast for backhaul?
yes, we can understand why operators like BT want to take the maximum juice out of their existing copper plants  serving millions of homes with G-fast. But unable to understand the logic of using G-fast for backhaul (or even fronthaul)  looking at the bandwidth requirements (and scaling) needed at the cell sites with 5G already on the horizon!

Lots of reasons to invest in FTTP....
There are lots of reasons for BT to invest in FTTP now.... deliveringa n affordable alternative to Ethernet access, preparing for %g... oh, and COMPETITION

It's a good investment.

Richard Jones at the ventura Group is convinced that the first company to take fiber to any premises will be the winner and I think he's right. Now BT has some other companies, most notable CityFibre, that are aiming to put in place the infrastructure that could enable a compmany that is NOT BT to take a fiber to a home or building - and that is not a battle that BT will want to be losing.

the economic argument for G.fast is compelling for sure but.... Selley is a smart guy - I can see him adhusting the mix of FTTP and copper in the next 5 years.
