    Question Rural Britan to get 1GB/s Fibre to the Home?

    Fujitsu plans 1Gbps fiber optic network for rural Britain

    Interesting news from gizmag, Who are the lucky winners?

    Fujitsu has unveiled plans to create a similar superfast FTTH broadband network for five million homes and businesses in rural Britain to bridge the digital divide between city and country.
    The network, which is being built using Cisco hardware and in collaboration with Virgin Media and TalkTalk, will offer 1Gbps symmetrical bandwidth from day one, with the potential to go to 10Gbps and beyond in the future. Positioning the network as a direct competitor to BT Openreach, the network will also be open to all ISPs on a wholesale basis, not just Virgin Media and TalkTalk, who have already announced their intention to access wholesale products via the new network to provide next generation services to customers in remote parts of the UK.
    Our Govt is still focused on 100mbit/s within 10 years

    I voluneteer my local area for it, it might makes these new ISP quotes look more sensible! I'm facing 30K+ quotes for a 100 line on a 100 barer!
