Lucky man. Yellow Wink

I'm waiting for an ISP to deploy optical fiber in my area... For the moment just sitting on 2 ADSL lines at home. Each line is giving around 8Mb/s download and 1Mb/s upload.

I thought Europe was ahead of the US in broadband deployment? We still have rural areas that only get landline telephone connection.

I've been waiting for Verizon FIOS which is fiber optics based to come to my area. It appears the cost of running fiber optics cable has been prohibitively expensive and they have pretty much stopped expanding. My cable company expanded their capacity and I renewed my service at the higher speed.

Optical fiber is already here but not yet for personnal use...
I'm 10 Km from the town where it's not a problem to get a FTTH line for around 40€ per month.
I think I just have to wait 2 or 3 more years to have this kind of access.

40 euros is not bad at all for fiber. I pay about $60 US for 60Mbs cable service which is subject to slow down because it's a shared pipe.
