FTTN

(Fiber To The Neighborhood or Node) The installation of optical fiber to a junction box (node) in a neighborhood that serves a few hundred customers within a radius of about a mile. The connections from the node to the customer premises often uses DSL over existing telephone wires or coaxial cable (DOCSIS) from the cable company.

FTTN vs. FTTC
If the radius of customers served by the node is less than a thousand feet, the service is typically called "fiber to the curb" (FTTC). See FTTx.
