Re: don't understand
The British Prime Minister just suffered another defeat today--and Hard Brexit is going to be profond--to pick up on what Susan noted late in December, it is not the worst, it is the absolute most horrific decision the British have taken--all based on lies.    The Dutch, French and the Belgians are very happy due to transfers--who wants to do business with Britain not withstanding whatever Broadband they have?

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.

Re: UK Needs to Speed it Up
Mess is an understatement--with profound implications that is yet to work itself out.

The MDU market continues to face fierce competition among service providers due to tech-savvy residents (i.e., millennials), demand from building owners and management companies, plus the favorable economics of bulk contracts. However, no MDUs are the same, so service providers must use multiple technologies and inconsistent deployment models, increasing operational complexity and rollout costs.

The MDU market itself is evolving as residents adopt smart-home technologies, generating rising demand for smart apartments with built-in connected thermostats, keyless entryways and doors, and video doorbells. This evolution presents both new challenges and opportunities. In other words, service providers must consider innovative service-delivery strategies to compete and win.

In this Broadband World News and ADTRAN webinar, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will highlight emerging MDU broadband Internet trends and challenges. In addition, Kurt will outline the next-generation service creation and delivery platform, built on open standards, that allows service providers to connect millions of underserved MDUs, enables creation of user-driven services, and reduces operational complexity and costs.

Plus, special guest, Alice Lawson, Broadband and Cable Program Manager for the City of Seattle, will discuss Seattle’s B4B-Build For Broadband initiative that addresses best practices in planning for MDU telecommunication infrastructure.
