    Any ballpark figures regarding costs involved for this service?

    ARC Telecoms is bridging the gap between fibre network nodes and the midsize businesses wanting access to them by creating a community fibre access point, with point-to-point microwave to connect the last mile (2km, to be exact).
    Is this then FttP or FttN (node)?
    FttP means exactly that, fibre right into the customer's premises.
    ELO: Here is the news...

    so they are a normal wisp, that happen to have a fiber link to their offices...?
    many wisps do that.

    Was wondering that as well, maybe they intend to implement this nationwide, starting with Stellenbosch as a test bench.
