I 100% agree with you. The deployment has to move now to the edge. Focus has 
been put (where it was) in the past years on the core of the Network 
Infrastructures and at some extend on applications compatibility, neglecting 
end users connectivity. This, I guess was a pure matter of deployment (and 
disruption mitigation) strategy for many operators. In our region it is also 
because anyway EU are connected over exaggerated NATed IP addressing design...
which in fact is a very bad network design habit (that has a very high cost).
