This interesting article by David Payne from the Institute of Advanced Telecommunications, Swansea University, UK, discusses the drive for new applications and services - particularly personaised video delivered over the internet - and how this could drive massive increases in bandwidth demand.

He relates how the advent of FTTP/H will enable this demand to be met if network operators can find ways for large-scale economic deployment. The key to this deployment is to simplify the network and remove as many expensive electronic nodes and terminations as possible (ie. get rid of FTTN).
