Broadband powered by home gateways? Whose bright idea was THIS?

FttDP

I thought powering the node in FttDP from the users premise actually made sense - as each user in essence had their own NTU in the pit which then connected via GPON back to the network - so each user was only powering their own device, and when they chose or were able to upgrade to FTTP it effectively became GPON to their premise. But maybe I've misunderstood FttDP.

Using Customer power to reverse feed a cabinet in FttN is just outrageous though - it just highlights one of the fundamentally stupid aspects of an FttN rollout.
