RE: [EFM] NTT, Ethernet

I visited Usen in Japan.

Their solution is based on proprietary 100FX-ish media converters built
into CPE fibre organizers.

It is a no frills solution targeted at the richest neighborhood of Tokyo
at the moment.

Most of you probably caught this: 

NTT launching 100 Mb/s in Japan.

"A Japanese government project, dubbed e-Japan, 
intends to connect 10 million households to 
100Mbit/s networks and 30 million households 
to 10Mbit/s networks by 2005."

"Usen shocked the Japanese communications industry 
by beating NTT to the punch with a 100Mbit/s service 
priced at $40 per month."

This is amazing stuff, and it is Ethernet (go EFM). 

I'd like more insight (service mix, concentration,
fiber, etc.) to this if anyone has it.
