There’s a very interesting and meaty feasibility study (warning .pdf link) for a city-wide municipal FTTH proposal in San Francisco. The document is worth reading as an introduction to the methods and difficulties of wiring an urban city with fiber… but I would disagree strongly with the opening paragraph:
San Francisco leads the nation in innovative municipal public service and in private sector technology innovation.
I suppose SFO could be innovative in it’s radical implementation of socialist policy and inefficiency. And I would argue that their neighbor to the south, known as ‘Silicon Valley’ is slightly better known than San Francisco for technology innovation.
