The article reports on the advantage of the Verizon Communication Inc.'s optical network on the fiber-to-optic-home business in the U.S. The optical fiber network offers less than $400 apiece. It is believed to be an ideal network for business, according to Glen Lang, founder and CEO of the Cary, North Carolina-based fiber-optic provider Connexion Technologies. Due to such advantage, significant operating expense savings have been experienced by the company.
