Re: More bandwidth and lower prices from Swisscom DSL

Finally Swisscom is starting to plan and invest (8bn CHF) for fibre to the home (FTTH). Source (In German: http://www.weltwoche.ch/artikel/?Ass...&CategoryID=62)

This could have been started years ago (like S. Korea) with Swisscom's huge profits and in a country of this scale. We could already be enjoying blazing speeds and the economic benefits that come with -- increased productivity, attracting companies & investment, education & research, etc. But they took the wait and see approach and thought VDSL would be sufficient for years to come.

Maybe in another 10 years we'll see the benefits...
