Who doesn't want faster internet access? In Europe, homes and businesses may soon get "ultra high-speed" broadband because of plastic optical fibre. In the US, typical broadband speeds are 10 Mbps to download. Developers hope to reach speeds of 1000 Mbps with the rollout of the new fibre to complete the "last mile" from glass optic networks to the home.
