SPOTLIGHT: San Francisco mulls FTTH


As if one controversy were not enough, San Francisco now has two of them on its hands. The first is the still-not-determined battle of the Google-EarthLink muni-WiFi idea. The second is building a municipal fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network to complement the muni-WiFi. The SF mayor's office paid some $300,000 to study the feasibility and costs of building an FTTH network, and the study was submitted to City Hall in late January. Report
