GlasvezelNet Amsterdam (GNA), a driving force behind Amsterdam's 40,000-home FTTH initiative CityNet, in conjunction with BBned and InterNLnet, recently conducted a trial to demonstrate the feasibility of delivering 1-Gbit/sec symmetrical service to the home.

Yesterday, GNA posted a video to YouTube entitled "1000/1000 Mbps FttH test Amsterdam." The images are somewhat grainy, and there is no sound, but I still think it's cool that they YouTubed their results.
