AT&T To Revamp BellSouth FTTC strategy?

Tom Nolle Tom Nolle Profile: Tom Nolle

AT&T is rumored to be considering a revamp of the BellSouth FTTC strategy, based on Tellabs, in favor of an FTTC/FTTP strategy based on Ericsson. Ericsson had, via its Marconi unit, a history with BellSouth’s fiber plans and there is some sign that the carrier is now breaking its original plan to have a uniform infrastructure in favor of a more regionalized approach. We have noted in the past that BellSouth’s internal review of fiber options prior to the merger had favored a Verizon-like plan, and this may be an indication that AT&T will now consider that for at least that region. We also believe AT&T may consider broader FTTH deployment and also the Verizon linear RF approach to broadcast.
