Quantum networks: light at the end of the tunnel?

A group of German physicists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics has succeeded in building the first working prototype for a quantum network. The network has the ability to send, receive and store quantum data between two different locations using fiber optics. Although only rudimentary at this early stage, the team from Max Planck say that the design can be further refined and is scalable.

France to mandate fiber optics in all new buildings

French fiber-optics law

On Thursday, the French government announced its plans to pass a law that would require all new apartment buildings to be pre-wired with fiber-optic cable for Internet access. A proposal that would include such a requirement is reported to go in front of the Parliament this spring, and will involve all buildings of at least 25 units. The government is trying to speed along adoption of fast broadband access with this law, as the country's three biggest Internet providers have committed to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on fiber-optic networks in the near future.
