Verizon had successfully launched a 100 Gigabit Ethernet for its European backbone network. Don’t read this the wrong way as if individual customers of Verizon in Europe suddenly will have faster connection, because the Verizon’s 100G Ethernet backbone network is meant to increase the bandwidth capacity and speed for large interconnected smaller networks within Verizon’s European interconnected networks. By doing this upgrade, Verizon will be able to handle more customers. Although the end users won’t see improvements first hand, eventually they will in my opinion. Faster backbone translates into a future where the possibility of having faster Internet for individual customers. I wonder when Verizon will do the same for America! Source.
