Among all fiber plans from Verizon, Deutsche Telekom, TDC, Telefonica, France Telecom, one generally well-run company is still absent: KPN.
That makes this press release somewhat intriguing. KPN is ordering 'upgradeable copper telecom cables' from Prysmian. The 'copper core can be removed in situ allowing optical fibres to be blown into the remaining 'tube''. However, only 'new subscriber connections will be realised in this manner'.
