We need better broadband but UK politicians can't deliver

We need better broadband but the politicians can't agree how to deliver it: "Commercial ISPs cannot be relied upon to connect rural areas, due to the high cost of laying infrastructure to supply only a few customers – a classic case of market failure, acknowledged by both parties. Labour’s claim that “all parts of the country” will “benefit from affordable, high-speed broadband by the end of the parliament” sounds – to put it kindly – optimistic. There’s no detail as to how this might be achieved in practice."

In fact, no broadband policy of note from either main party - it's the market failure stupid. They lack the vision thing - and net neutrality commitments. 'via Blog this'
