    It seems that a few years ago fiber was the hot subject. I would like
    to know if there are any plans to try to run fiber to the house, and
    what is the problem with why it hasn't been done already.

    I know this isn't exactly your question but..

    In the UK some housing development are supplied by fiber but the final run
    to the house is wire. The fiber part of the chain actually prevents those
    houses having broadband via ADSL and they have to make do with 56K dial up
    lines. They are actually worse off than people who have an all wire link to
    the exchange.

    The cost of splicing it, and the termination equipment is still quite
    high.

    I found ancient runes from rcleary[] in the floor of
    sci.electronics.misc:
    Simple and direct answer: the costs.
