France Telecom to Launch FTTH Trials in Paris

France Telecom announced plans to launch FTTH trials in six districts in Paris and six cities in the Hauts-de-Seine.

The pilot program include High Definition TV, unlimited telephony and very high speed Internet access. Customers participating in the pilot program will also be offered a wide range of innovative services to test. At the end of this first experimental phase, France Telecom will be able to ramp up its pilot programs to cover other regions in France or abroad by 2007.

France Telecom said the choice of FTTH illustrates its strategy "to offer the best of technology in France and worldwide."
