And then there's the matter of who's paying for it. Even if initial cost 
is covered by the home owners in a new development project, there is 
maintenance costs associated with such a setup. If the ILEC is 
responsible, but doesn't subsidize costs by controlling all customers or 
billing out to the other ISPs, it creates an unfair disadvantage on the 
ILEC.
