Link: Fiberevolution: Dutch pragmatism wins again

Netherlands carrier rolling out FTTH nationwide at a cost of 6-7 Billion Euros, or 1000E per home. This will be pt-to-pt fiber that could be operated as a PON or as active Ethernet. KPN has traditionally leaned towards active Ethernet using 100M over multi-mode fiber, so GPON may miss this party.

    I find this a bit odd. Where has multi-mode fiber been used in the context of reaching residential end points, other than for in-house LANs and some MDUs?
