[kwlug-disc] Wightman Telecom

FWIW - friends recently got Bell's FibeTV (long story, apparently 
continuing - lightning strike, things blowed up REAL good).

Although one's impression might be it's FTTH, apparently it's actually 
FTTN. (Perhaps depends upon the neighbourhood?)

Any reason to believe any Wightman effort would actually be FTTH? 
Trenching for such would seem to be a major cost impediment to pricing 
being disruptive.

Or would it only be a limited rollout, more commercial than residential?
