NTT started building the FTC buildout in the mid-90s. At least that's
when the plans were first discussed. They took a bold leap back when
most people were waffling about WANs and Bellcore was saying
SMDS was going to be the way of the future. Now they reap the
benefits, while some of us are left behind in the bandwidth ghettos
of North America. :-(
