Govermant’s new ‘High speed internet’? January 29, 2009

The government is apparently trying to get “High speed internet” to everyone in the UK. That’s what they are saying but I’m not convinced.

First thing to pint out is that by ‘high speed internet’ they really man broadband, only 2 Meg. That is slow compared to most places in the UK. The ISP’s agree and with most company’s cheapest package claiming up to 8 Meg, there is still room for improvement.

What I don’t like is how they are calling it ‘High speed’ making it sound like they were talking about the newer Fibre-Optic technology which needs to be sent out to homes or we will be left behind with sub standard connections. The Fibre-Optic’s are still a problem with BT, Virgin and the Government arguing over who should pay the Multi-Billion pound bill for this Future internet technology to be rolled out.

The future isn’t looking good for the UK in the digital age and if someone doesn’t pay for Fibre Optic then we will be rapidly left behind.
