The Last Mile Dilemma...

The Lack of Viable Access Networks
Over the past decade, the world has seen a deluge of newly installed fiber optic networks.  This sudden increase in installations, combined with unprecedented fiber optic technology advances, has increased the broadband capacity of non-access networks to levels only dreamed of a decade ago.  Current aggregate capacity in these long-haul networks is in the millions of terabits per second range.  However, there is a chasm in the connection of homes and business to this fiber optic network.

Access networks (telephone and broadband networks connecting homes and businesses to the regional and international networks) and their related technologies such as cable modem, DSL, and dial-up, have failed to keep pace with the long haul networks.  In fact, less than 18% of premises in the United States have broadband services.  This statistic is similar or lower in most other parts of the world.  Furthermore, of those that do have this broadband service, the majority of the service capacity ranges from 0.25 to 1.5 megabits per second.

The lack of viable access networks combined with the huge capacity of the long-haul networks has led to a devastatingly high surplus of capacity in the long haul networks.  Literally billons of dollars have been lost or written off as a result of this "Last Mile Dilemma".  Telecommunication carriers, investors, application developers, businesses and governments are desperately seeking a solution to this Last Mile Dilemma.
