Ofcom suggest cables in sewers

Around the world there are cities such as Paris in France who have used the sewers that travel underneath the ground to lay the new super fast cables quickly, safely and without causing serious disruption the roads and traffic.

Ofcom believe that this should be the way to go, and would bring the cities of the UK up to the same standards as other major cities throughout the world.

However there is slight problem there, this has already been suggested by H2O networks, a company based in Wales. In fact the company has plans to roll out their scheme in several UK towns and cities.

Yet it has to be considered that if Ofcom are championing this type of broadband installation then companies like H2O will be looking to bid on the installation projects.

The good thing about this, is that it is not out of the question that a 100 Mb connection speed could become a reality in a very short time, although just how long it is going to take to feed the cable through the sewers is another thing that really needs to be clarified, along with the cost.
