Thats always a bit grey in an FTTP/FTTH context. The ONT usually presents a 
100Mb/s bridged ethernet interface to the home. Meaning that the "CPE" is 
the ONT (owned by the carrier).

My *guess* is that this will evolve into a bridged GE interface presented to 
the home. At this interface I would expect to see the end user to purchase a 
GE firewall/NAT device.

The smart way of course would be to have the ONT act as a home gateway.
