100 Mbps Internet connections at home
The Fiber-to-the-home Council (FTTH) is urging the US Government to adopt a National Policy Objective towards universal and affordable broadband networks.
According to their established goals, next-generation broadband networks should be available for a majority of Americans by 2010, and universal access by 2015. The big news is that in order for those consumers to be able to receive and transmit video and other high-speed services, these networks should have transmission speeds in excess of 100Mbps.
As part of their strategy, FTTH encourages the Administration and Congress to hear from all stakeholders to achieve consensus. FTTH is a market development organization whose mission is to educate, promote, and accelerate Fiber-to-the-home and the resulting quality-of-life enhancements.
