Along with all of the other disaggregation?

I'm not sure why anyone is going to want to spend that far into the future
with respect to the cost and lack of visibility into the state of
transition. This is a great way to undermine the STLS.

That would be a guess. You don't know what the cost of addresses will be.
That will directly impact demand. Be careful about being too excited about
markets. They will be necessary, but it won't be something to be happy
about. The cost of an address in a market using STLS will dwarf the costs we
have now.
