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.
