Summary: Homes With Tails, PDF: Homes With Tails
We call this property model “Homes with Tails,” for the fiber would form part of the property right in the home. Key facets of our approach include:
1. A “condominium” model for fiber ownership, in which individual strands of fiber are sold to consumers, while maintenance and other collective needs are managed jointly.
2. Private firms and municipalities could consider selling fiber connections based on this model; and
3. Governments could consider using various mechanisms to support consumer purchases, including a tax credit to homeowners or renters who purchase a broadband connection.
