    Unless greater steps are taken to expand fiber broadband, the connectivity option won't be available to everyone in the European Union nations for 92 years, according to a forecast from Ventura Team. "The current switchover is happening at a snail's pace and it could seriously obstruct economic growth across Europe for a long time to come," states the consultancy in a release. According to the FTTH Council Europe, about 5 million of the 210 million homes in the EU's 27 countries have a fiber broadband connection.
