Further evidence of fresh momentum in the UK market for fully-fibred digital local access networks arrived today in the form of a consortium headed by Fujitsu and including Virgin Media, Talk Talk and Cisco.
The collaborative partners aim to bring fully-fibred symmetric 1Gb/s services to 5 million Uk households - primarily in rural areas.
Fujitsu have also confirmed that they are sponsoring the NextGen 11 series of roadshows - starting in Edinburgh on May 12th.
Fujitsu's announcement today coincides with a report from ECTA on the urgent need for a Europe-wide copper switch-off plan.
Full text of the Fujitsu announcement is available here.
