Yes, another "British Broadband" thread 17:02 - Nov 15 with 472 viewsbaxterbasics

Thought I'd help us all enlighten ourselves further. A basic "is it feasible" piece by the Guardian (guess what, even they can see some potential issues).

Then there is this more in depth analysis on Twitter by someone who appears to know his onions regarding Broadband services and the implications:

Never been on twitter - but the BBC has just shown a graph showing our Broadband is a bit worse than Madagascar. Maybe the trots have trotted out a good idea.

Am not making on a comment on the practicalities or cost of what is being proposed - but standing back - getting broadband to every house has to be something that is good. Definitely needed.

We have infrastructure - be it roads, sewage, electricity, phones - in all corners of the UK. Broadband is as important as any of those - and our failure to invest as fully as many other countries in broadband, is incredibly short sighted / damaging imho.

Plus it will have huge environmental benefits imho given the ability to communicate via teleconferencing etc. rather than face to face...

Exactly. We’ve got a disconnect between the different papers of the network, and hundreds of separate entities all doing their own separate thing that’s hurting consumers. Sounds like standardising and forcing through upgrades to the ends of the lines would benefit a lot of homeowners and businesses.

So you’re prepared to throw those “hundreds of entities” and thousands of employee to the wall? In what way are they hurting consumers? I would have thought choice was better than “one size fits all”
