Lord Puttnam bewails lack of ambition in Digital Britain

He sees a 2Mbps ambition (not a declared goal but an aspiration according to Lord Carter)  for USO as '20th Century thinking':

"The report has its priorities straight but I worry greatly about its scale and ambition regarding the level of bandwidth we need. I've been talking to people in Singapore about needing gigabytes by 2015. Either the authorities here are barmy and don't realise what the British creative industries here need, or we are. There's a massive gap of where the balance of credibility lies. Are we a 21st Century nation or are we equipping ourselves for the 20th Century?"
