opticsAh, Shoreditch, London. You'll no longer be known as the community from whence Damien Hirst's career sprang forth -- at least not around these parts, not as long as 20,000 residents of the East London neighborhood will be getting fiber Internet connections at speeds up to 2Gbps. Yes, that's gigabits, friend, and with it those lucky limies will have access to what we believe is the fastest fiber-to-the-home rollout we've yet seen, which even includes access to IPTV streams of their local CCTV neighborhood watch cameras. No word on exactly when these East Londoners will be getting access (we're estimating it'll be by the year 2020) or at what price, but we're already pricing property, if you feel us.
