2015 is a lot better than never …

Hard on the heels of mounting not-spot desperation, it looks as if hope may be rewarded by the government’s announcements today. The Minister’s comments were timely.
Perhaps our villages’ children will be able to download their school work, small businesses survive, households save petrol (£1.229 a litre here), people work from home, e-government social discrimination removed, etc etc.
Lets’ hope fixing the regulatory anomalies (VOA fibre tax, market domination abuse, post and duct sharing) doesn’t slow matters down.
Is cautious applause premature? … I won’t plan to take out my appendix on line just yet!

    The plan is great, but the implementation may leave a lot to be desired. The tender process is skewed in the favour of the incumbent, and public money will just go into protecting the copper phone network unless councils are au fait with the physics, as has happened in Cornwall. The million pound advertising budget of BT and their copper infinity offering will win many hapless counties over I fear.
    FTTC is not next generation access. There is more info on some of today’s blog posts.

    According to Welsh Assembly, we’ll have to wait until 2020 for FTTC to reach households. That’s a mighty long time to wait.
