Explaining the benefits of fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) can be a challenge. Forget the numbers, it’s all about the very human angle of what we can do with high-speed connectivity. These short video clips from the FTTH Council Europe, premiered in their conference in Munich, do a nice job at explaining how FTTH has made a difference to the lives of ordinary people.
Perhaps you think the title of this post is a little overstated, but I doubt that the subjects of these videos would agree with you. For them, FTTH has dramatically improved their work-life balance, saved them money in business and fostered independent living well into retirement.
This first clip is about a film director in the tiny town of Kilafors in Sweden (about 1000 inhabitants), who created collaborative software tools so that he could run a data-intensive film-editing business remotely (using four computer screens simultaneously, no less).
More video clips are available on the FTTH Council Europe website.
