Opened for commercial operation in 1984, the trial optical fiber network at Biarritz in south-west France gives 1,500 subscribers access to a whole range of broadband services - videophony, audiovisual databases, TV and stereo sound program distribution, and an on-line TV program library - in addition to conventional narrow-band services like telephony and videotex. The Biarritz network is an outstanding technology and engineering testbed. It is also a sociological testing ground for new services, unique in the world, with results of particular relevance to the interactive cable TV and visual communications networks of the future.
