    Please add my name
    Michael Bolsover
    Broadcast Editor to you campaign.

    I work as a freelance in the TV editing business, and cannot work from home because last century “rural” broadband speeds prohibit this. By rural I mean about 5 miles from a town. We are not talking the middle of nowhere.

    Several other companies I have worked at were similarly disadvantaged when it came to web delivery of viewing copies of programmes. An upload of a rough cut to the US can take 20 minutes on superfast broadband, time for a cup of tea perhaps. On more regular ADSL this can take 8 or more hours. For a business this is the difference between making the deadline or losing future work. I can give more real world examples if required.

    British Business needs near universal 100Mb bi-directional speeds now just to catch up. The high speed Web will pass us by if nationwide access is not made a Government and telecoms industry priority. The industry is losing money right now as I would have paid for an FTP host, for instance, but it would be a waste of money. It is not practical for me to use it for my work as the slow speeds mean the post office is faster ! In that sense we are still in the 19th century when it comes to the moving image. Media is a big business in Britain and telecoms companies could make more if they designed services to fit the needs of the huge number of small companies and individuals that make up this industry. This would also enable many more creative people to work from home and cut pollution and travel time wasted on journeys to major cities.
