From the Wikipedia entry, I take the 'last mile' of networks to means the point at which network capacity is split from the 'trunk' and provided to individual users. So in my mind this could mean:
- The link between a wireless receiving device and a wireless emitter (i.e a wifi or mobile connection)
- The feed from utility poles to a user's home network
- Are there other examples?
More specifically, are there any components of a network considered to be 'last mile' that handle connectivity for more than a single user?
Also, aside from home-devices such as routers, what network infrastructure elements could be included within a network's 'last mile'?
