+ - Japan and EU Commit 18m Euros to Develop 100Gbps Internet Access 1

Submitted by Mark.JUK
Mark.JUK (1222360) writes "The European Union and Japan have unveiled a joint investment of 18 Million Euro’s that aims to build more efficient fibre optic broadband networks that are “5000 times faster than today’s average European broadband ISP speed (100Gbps compared to 19.7Mbps)“. The funding will go towards supporting six research projects, which range from an effort to enable fibre optic networks at more than 100Gbps (aka – STRAUSS), to investigating new ways of ensuring efficient use of energy in information networks (aka — GreenICN). Faster than 100Gbps fibre optic links already exist but the new research could potentially help to bring these closer to homes. Some ISPs already offer 1Gbps+ connections to home users; not so long ago everybody was still stuck on a 50Kbps dialup link or slower."
