This announcement of 10Gbits to 100Gbits is not impressive
Heck, in March the first residential 10G/10G Internet connection was delivered here in Norway from Bayonette, source via Google translate. They have a 24xGbit hub with 2x10G for expansion and instead give you a direct line. Note that it mistranslates the prices, it's 5999 NOK = $727/month for 10G, 3-400 NOK = $36-50 for 1G so I'd call it mostly a publicity stunt but for a dedicated research network it's peanuts.
Now 100 Gbit is a bit more exotic but I know "The Gathering", a 5000 people data party had a 100 Gbit Internet connection in 2011 (10x10G bonded) as a publicity stunt though they never peaked beyond 20 GBit/s actual usage. So yeah in 2015 I'd say this sounds mostly like off the shelf technology, of course getting it rolled out into actual production use is nice. But clearly this is about bandwidth to research other things, not state of the art in networking technology.
