INTERNET TRENDS: New technology set to eclipse ADSL
Japan firm pioneers fibre-to-the-home advances for domestic broadband
users

Global broadband Internet providers are promoting fibre-to-the-home
(FTTH) technology to transport Net services to domestic users at
lightning speed.

Tetsuo Koga, executive vice-president for consumer business of
Japan's NTT East, said Japan was migrating from Asymmetric Digital
Subscriber Line (ADSL) to FTTH technology to provide faster broadband
Internet.

FTTH will allow the company to offer several bandwidth services,
including its Internet protocol video-phone service, Koga said.

He was speaking at the Broadband World Forum Asia fair in Yokohama last
week.

FTTH is gaining ground in many countries, including Japan, South Korea
and the United States, thanks to its ability to provide a virtually
unlimited bandwidth and faster data transmission rate compared to the
prevailing copper wire-based ADSL technology.

NTT East started its FTTH-based content in January 2003 and signed up
about 70,000 users in the first month. The number had surged to 2.43
million by March this year. It expects its FTTH subscriber numbers to
jump to 30 million by 2010.

As of last year, Japan had 12.7 million broadband Internet subscribers.

Data network provider Advanced Datanetwork Commu-nications (ADC)
recently introduced a low-fee ADSL broadband Internet service.

Germany's telecom equipment supplier Siemens provided broadband
solutions to ADC's broadband Internet in a deal worth Bt2 billion.

Siemens is one of the major telecom equipment suppliers with FTTH
technology called Passive Optical Networks (PON).

Quoting things without mentioning sources, and particularly without even
giving the author, is not only rude, but might be considered a copyright
violation, and could get some publisher angry. They'd be less angry (or
even welcome quotes) if you do the decent thing, and give them credit !!

Give a link to the original work, for all to see. It is very easy to do,
in fact it is as easy as quoting whole chunks of their work (!!) Even
better, IMO, is a precis of their article, for background, and the URL:
http://www.nationmultimedia.com/2005..._17604741.html

or in a shortened form: http://makeashorterlink.com/?N1BC3353B
