Unless it's a pun, in which case, don't mind me, I'm on my way.

Two of France's biggest telecom operators, Orange & SFR, are pushing FTTH throughout Paris.

Not the Paris on the picture, the other one, the city, and no, it's not in Texas.

I should know, starting from Thursday, I'll be "banned from using the internet" with a 100M download and 50M upload FTTH connection.

Leccy plane anyone ?
