Are they? Last I saw they were building out a layer 3 network -- no 
wholesale access -- did this change?

It sorta fit with their goals in that it meant they could build a 
faster/simpler network for less money and make a big/bold 1 Gbps to 
every home (not really true) statement, but it doesn't end up serving a 
very practical model for most of the world who believe the separation 
needs to happen at layer 2.

Layer 3 is interesting, but is everyone happy with saying goodbye to the 
ISP entirely and accepting regional monopolies on that space?
