RE: [EFM] NTT, Ethernet

Yes, but they only seem to deploy in the richest neighborhoods as I

Hi Francois,

I don't call $50/month access charge (including CPE rental fee 
and basic charge) service the service for richiest neighborhood.
  ($50/month or 6100yen/month is the public information.  Please  see

Usen uses their own P2P fiber from their mini COs on the streets.
  No splitter, no PON as far as I know.
