Yes, and in that world, one should probably not start up a FTTH ISP when 
one has not even budgeted for a router, among a thousand other things. 
And if you must, you should probably figure out your cost breakdown 
beforehand, not after. Baldur, you mention $200k total to move 10gb with 
Juniper (which seems insanely off to me). Look into Brocades CER line, 
you can move 4x 10gbe per chassis for under 12k.
