Little Slovenia, part of the Big Fiber Dream �

Om Malik, a well-known technology industry figure, has published an interesting article about Slovenia's plans for deploying fiber optic cables directly to individual homes in the country:

"Slovenia is one of those tiny nations you may have heard off but may have difficulty finding on the map. Independent for about 16 years, the country with a population of over 2 million was carved out of the old Yugoslavia. Despite its diminutive size, it is one of the important players in the fiber-to-the-home revolution that is slowly sweeping the world.

The local incumbent, Telekom Slovenije, has launched a project, F2, a massive fiber to the home project that will get 50,000 Slovenian homes fiber-based broadband access. That may not sound like much, but it still is an important piece that adds to the overall FTTH deployments worldwide, which are slowly and steadily increasing."

Anyone who is interested to find out more about Telekom Slovenia's plans should checkout the interesting commentary at the end of the article.
