Government warns of broadband cold war

Government warns of broadband cold war

Its not as if we all don’t know it, but the UK’s Minister for Competitiveness, Stephen Timms warned us of a broadband cold war a while back when comparing our network to that if the US, Japan, Germany & France and it looks like his prediction may be coming true.

In order for the UK broadband network to be upgraded to a respectable level, it will take both the regulator Ofcom and the telecoms industry to get their act together and start working as they should be, instead of against anything the other proposes.

Finally the industry itself believe that there should be a single technology which would make things easier for all concerned, because there are many different speeds being offered to the consumers around the country, the speed generally is governed by how far the building is away from the exchange. Which goes to prove the point that generalisation is needed.
