In practice CLECs do not have access.   The TR order of the last decade
mandated that access via FTTH was not a section 251 requirement under the
Telco Act of 1996 except for a 64kbs stream which in theory could be used
for voice.  However, I believe there has been no widescale use of that
feature because it is uneconomical compared to "over-the-top" VoIP.
