Real life problem. A city's planning to install a GPON FTTH network. The city's only proposing to install the fiber, so the OLTs and ONTs will be owned by the service provider.
The city would also like to have competition: multiple service providers. This appears to be a problem, as once a fiber is terminated into one service provider's OLT, they have sole access to all of the customers served by that fiber.
Do I have this right? Are there any examples of cities with competing service providers using this model, and, if so, how do they get around the problem above?
