Paper Abstract

This decade has seen extensive use of fiber in the telephone network. Fiber is already pervasive in interoffice facilities, and is now being introduced into the local loop, which represents 90% of telephone circuit miles. In the feeder portion of the loop, the connection between the central office and remote terminals, fiber has already made significant inroads. In fact, Ameritech has more route miles of fiber in each of its five states than is in the entire network of the interexchange carrier whose advertisements stress their use of fiber.
