Karl Bode used “fiber to the press release” or FTTPR as it is known on dslreports.com as early as 2008.
The cool part is, if you omit any mention of scale, there’s no limit to how many times you can make the same announcement. I worked for Bell Atlantic back in the 80s, and digital subscriber loop was big hubba hubba even back then.
