don't understand
I don't understand how Brexit is stimulating broadband, in a way that would not be achieved anyway, whether the UK leaves or remains in the EU. Aren't the competitive pressures there regardless?

Freehe: Don't get fooled. Brexit is the worst possible thing that can ever happen to the UK. One really needs to be in the centre of the process to realise about how bad it actually is. For everybody. The UK is going to suffer lots if this actually happens.

Offering fiber to all new home builds is a great incentive to attract younger age groups. It will also attract technically savvy residents, startup businesses and established businesses.

Fiber can provide many benefits to Brexit. It is definitely a step in the right direction for Brexit. I am surprised at their ranking. Maybe in the next 5 to 10 years their ranking will improve.

5,000 jobs seems like a small amount considering the size of the country. However, you have to start somewhere. Small steps will lead to bigger steps and hopefully bigger implementation.

Re: UK Needs to Speed it Up
The current emphasis on folks feeling the need to stay independent and with their own "tribe" is seemingly taking hold on among some country's populations leading to the expensive and anxiety producing dilemma of how to fix regulations when opinions are almost evenly split 50/50.

Mess is an understatement--with profound implications that is yet to work itself out.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other – or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers – simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
