I think we just found a new verse for this song
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IiaO9rP46WU

when I was a tyke, I had to suffer
sharing a computer with my older brother!
growing up we used to pay AOL
even though we used it for DSL

For 35 years I had married gloom
Until I moved next door
just for breathing room

Then it happened, the very next day
my mother called Verizon and said alright, I'll pay
a part of me was dyin, cuz theres no denyin
the pain of losing Fios left me cryyy-in

turn it off, like a light switch
turn it off...

I was expecting after reading this topic that while thinking you were Argentinian all these years, it turns out grandpa and grandma had been Nazi's who escaped justice and currently had an entire village on the Argentine/Chilean border kept underground, working in a vain attempt to create nuclear weapons for Iran, al-quaeda, and the Sons of Anarchy.

I am actually feeling better about your parents. They sound like nice people.

That's nothing. My parents still won't buy their children a gaming consol. I've been waiting over 40 years.

Wictory.

How could I not play the Hitler card with a thread title like that? :D

FTTN is not FTTH. And heck, the most known FTTN deployment has had these issues:

...for the last 7 years in deployment. I wonder how many of these lawsuits are still going on:

Most cable networks operate on fiber, too, and just use coax for the last mile. It don't make it a fiber network to the customer, though:

Though I'm not sure how you pointing out that the part of the network that's not the last mile is fiber relates to the tragedy of using only 64 Kbps of the full bandwidth available with fiber run to someone's door. Here's a Veyron to use but here, I put a 5 MPH speed limiter on it.

Your articles perfectly illustrates the problems of NIMBY and local governments that telecoms have to content with. It is almost one of the largest reasons why FTTH deployments are so spare in the USA. It doesn't help that demand residential market for fiber connection and ultra-speed connection is tiny. Granny and Mom don't *need* 100Mbps to sent emails or watch some random youtube video (480p). The people who *want/need* are already boarded and are willing to pay for it.
