Submission + - Fibre To The Cabinet Is A Big Mistake? (techweekeurope.co.uk)

judgecorp writes: "After tales of copper theft and with the demand for faster broadband, you might think that replacing copper cables with fibre is a good idea. Instead, running fibre to roadside cabinets is "one of the worst mistakes humanity has made" according to futurologist and former BT CTO Peter Cochrane. You would have thought it was some way behind wars and reality TV, but apparently the idea of stopping the fibre at the kerb is just wrong. And it doesn't stop theft, as criminals will break into the cabinet to get the battery it contains, said Cochrane."
