RE: [EFM] RE: [EFM-Copper] the merits of 12 kft and +

As well for service providers there is the concern of number of pairs in the local loop, as Daun pointed out, I believe, in LAX. If there was no POTS support with dedicated pairs for EFM, marketability would be greatly diminished. Per one ILEC there is to be no additional copper infrastructure work done outside of rehabs. To place them in a position of needing more pairs would be self-defeating, no?

POTs allows for 'single line service', which renders DSL provisioning more
palatable to residential customers that do not desire a dedicated line for
DSL services.

Take care,
