Over the long term, according to the analyst, this would add up to many billions of dollars — for example, $9 billion in total over ten years. “The longer FTTN remains in place, the greater the foregone benefit for not switching to FTTP,” he wrote.
And there are also other factors which would also inflate the cost of FTTN. For example, as the FTTN network was gradually replaced with FTTP over the long-term due to growing demand, this would cause additional costs to accrue to the FTTN option.
