At least members of Parliment seem to have a better grasp on technology than members of Congress have.

What's the Problem Here?
It seems like the people want it and the government is pushing for it. I would assume that the physical fiber deployment wouldn't take to long in GB; so is it just a money issue or am I missing something else?

Re: What's the Problem Here?
I do wonder how they calculate this: "The economic impact of just our plans, we think, is worth more than £80 billion and 5,000 jobs."

UK Needs to Speed it Up
The UK should never be a laggard to countries like Romania and Madagascar. Despite what may become of Brexit, the issue of high-speed broadband for the people is one that definitely can affect the economy. At least they have begun to address the problem, and there are service providers ready to fix it.

Re: UK Needs to Speed it Up
Getting to some uniformity in mandating service levels might be quite a challenge as seemingly all the nation's energy is going towards solving the Brexit puzzle. Interesting how getting "mandatory full-fiber broadband for all new-home builds," is one of the few mandates already decided.

Re: UK Needs to Speed it Up
@batye I'm not sure exactly why Britian wants to pull out of the EU, and whether it will be a positive move for the country. Curious as to how the monarchy feels about it. I've had a discussion once on here about it. But I do know if Britain is lagging in broadband, it's imperative that it gets up to speed.

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