I think the problem with what we are are focusing on for access is that
this is mostly residential use, with ADSL for example. This will not
not really help the economy. Having high speed home access won't
generate more employment opportunities. What we really would need is
better access for corporate users through out Europe, and then ADSL
won't cut it. They want their cable-TV, financial wire services,
Frame-RElay and voice services come in over the same cable.
