More FTTH in Holland

"Introducing 'de kersentuin'":

"A group of enthusiastic people have been working on a development plan for 94 sustainable houses. The plan is a mix of family houses with gardens and apartments. Together they comprise a small neighborhood with some special common facilities, such as a neighborhood cafe and room for meetings. We also encourage people to work at home. Some of the (bigger) houses are specially designed for that purpose. June 2003 the first inhabitants have moved in. See for an impression of the building project"

"The fiber network should be an operator neutral platform. Each house is connected by fiber and connected in a central room. We will offer VoIP, internet and intranet services. TVoIP is not feasible yet since we have not identified a provider that could deliver TV over IP."

The City of Utrecht will use the results of this deployment in designing a larger system for 25,000 homes.
