Interest and demand for gigabit broadband is on the rise with more than a hundred known deployments worldwide. But while the spotlight has mostly shone on North America over the past year, there is growing activity in Europe too.

Gigabit services were defined as at least 1Gb/s in one or both directions – download or upload.
