It seems that no matter what happens within the UK’s broadband industry one factor will remain the same and that is the digital divide.
This comes about when some consumers are able to subscribe to a broadband service up to 50 Mbps or in some rare cases up to 100 Mbps, while there are those consumers who are only able to sign up for a 0.5 Mbps broadband service.
The Digital Britain report has put forward the plan to provide all UK households with a minimum 2 Mbps broadband connection, but as this service is being rolled out to wipe out the broadband notspots, super fast broadband is being rolled out in urban areas.
Super fast broadband is available in many other countries where the networks have steadily been upgraded.
Virgin Media has upgraded its network to fibre and stopped, whereas BT is still trialing its fibre broadband.
