Fibre for all in ten years?


by David Allen

The conservative leader, David Cameron, has promised to make sure that all areas of the UK are connected to high speed internet, if a Conservative government is elected.

The bad news is that he is talking about a ten year time scale, but by 2019 all homes in the UK could be connected to high speed internet.

In the UK we already have some of the slowest broadband connection speeds in Europe, therefore it stands to reason that in ten years time the situation may not have improved, in fact the average connection speed could still be lower than the rest of Europe.

Improvements are underway, such as Virgin Media’s launch of their fibre optic service, but this will reach less than half of the UK, leaving the other half with a poor service, and in some cases no service to speak of.
