Den Haag 1650A strong event for years. I've been wanting to go to this event before and I'm glad it's working out this year. Speakers include: Lieven Mertens of Belgacom, the first to deploy vectoring; John McDonald of BT, whose CEO is talking 15M lines of; Marko Loeffelholz of DT, promising 12-24M fast lines; and John Cioffi, inventor of vectoring and much more. Here's the speaker list

Den Haag has changed a lot since the picture was painted in 1650 but retains a great deal of history. I don't know if the cafes are as interesting as those in Amsterdam but that city is just a short train ride away. The van Gogh Museum is remarkable. You'll think differently about him when you see the earlier paintings. The Rembrandts in the Rijksmuseum are also unforgettable.
