I have to question this expense argument. You're saying that a 1.5Mbps
copper T1 device costs less then a 1Gps fiber/optical component. Fine,
but I'm not sure why that's compelling. If we tried to make that same
device run 650 times faster and use optical components as a GbE SMF,
would that price comparison would hold up? I don't have any hard data
to pull out, but I'm guessing it wouldn't.
