Hi Mark,

> My preference, for the home, would be Active-E. But I do understand the economics that may support PON, and my position on that has softened over the years.

Same for me. I like the architecture where the PON splitters are in powered roadside cabinets (even though the splitter is passive). That way the ISP can convert it to AE at any time they want. The architectures where PON has been hardcoded into the design has always felt like a huge risk regarding future developments.
