Paper Abstract

Costs for active double-star fiber networks for local exchange service are compared with the costs of copper twisted-pair single-star networks and copper coaxial-line tree networks with switching at the customer's premises. For both existing and new neighborhoods, it appears that delivery of broadband services through tree networks (possibly using fiber) and delivery of narrow band services through copper twisted-pair star networks will be the minimum cost approach for low market penetrations of the broadband service market. For near 100 percent market penetrations there is relatively little difference in the costs of the two approaches.
