The International Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) has finalised the specification for DSL broadband services up to 100Mbps.

VDSL2 (very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line 2) uses existing copper wires, and is designed to complement the installation of fibre networks to provide support for high-bandwidth applications such as TV, video-on-demand and videoconferencing. Many operators see it as the ideal accompaniment to fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP), where fibre optic lines are used to link offices or apartment blocks to the network backbone (PSTN) to provide sufficient bandwidth for all the users in each building.
