If I understand it right, telcos can either BUY the operation centers or "lease" them. My guess is that, for any telco not wanting to take much upfront risks in investing in expensive equipments, FVC.com offers them an option to prove it to themself. If I were FVC.com, I will price my "service" so expensive that telcos will be better off buying the operation centers and operate them themselves(lease to buy). Just my speculations. Either way, if the vedio operation centers/vedio portals performs well, FVC.com will need a lot of working capitals to build these equipments. QWST has the bargaining power now to take a position with FVC.com, especially if QWST believe FVC.com's technology will fly.
