One thought on “European & DSL, an affair to remember”

  1. A big reason why DSL is more popular in Europe is that many major countries like Germany or France only recently upgraded their copper infrastructure (France in the 70s, Germany in the 90s), and the more recent copper is more suitable for high speeds than the poorly maintained one in the US (some of which was laid during Woodrow Wilson’s administration)…

    Of course, the higher population density means CO distances are lower, and that helps.
