We will have glass fibre high speed internet soon !
I almost couldn't believe my eyes when I read the first announcement: free (for the 1st year) high speed internet (10Mb) through a fibre glass cable till in our home !
This programme (http://www.onsneteindhoven.nl) is highly subsidized by the Dutch government. Without that it would cost around 500 euros to get connected (including the first year membership would cost around 300 euros). So that's very interesting. A lot of people in our area already signed up. Plans are being made for telephone and television as well (finally getting rid of UPC would be great).
