Fiber supplement

I just received an SMS reporting that the Amsterdam City council has apparently voted unanimously (45 out of 45) in favor of Phase One of the municipal FTTH project, which I have written about ad nauseum in the past, but which most of the market seems to have steadfastly ignored - no doubt that will change now (though the formal shareholder agreement has yet to be ironed out). I had previously heard predictions that we might expect 75 - 80% council support, so this looks like a complete knock-out blow for the proposition of muni networks. Call me alarmist, but I think this opens up a dramatic new chapter for EuroTelcoland, and is a perfect start for 2006 for those who wish to see more robust connectivity for all!
