California: Loma Linda requires real estate developers to include FTTH in new developments

"You're lying on the couch after a long day. Maybe a movie. Fun, not too serious. "Lethal Weapon." You don't own it, but punch a few keys, and it's on. A few blocks away, your daughter is playing in the park with her friends. Every once in awhile, you pause the movie and switch to a video camera scanning the park, just to check on her. In the next room, your son is playing an Xbox game against a friend who's sitting in his own house under his own parents' watchful eyes.

It may sound fanciful, but the technology to do all those things exists today, and Loma Linda wants it in every new development built in the city. It's planning a fiber-optic network that could carry Internet service, high-definition TV, telephone service and all other sorts of data, and is requiring developers to install the equipment in new homes."
