18m Euro aimed at making your internet reach warp speed

The European Commission and Japan have announced that they will be funding a number of research projects for a combined value 18 million Euros, with the goal of increasing the speed of internet connections by a factor of up to 5000. This would mean that many Europeans and Japanese homes would have 100Gbps connections.

According to ISPreview, the projects launched will look at issues like enabling 100Gbps networks, how to better the use of existing electronic infrastructure to support the new ultra-high speed connections and improving data security and energy efficiency in ultra-high speed connections.
