    1. 1.
    2. 2.
    3. 3. England is a very odd place<br />We only live in two places. . . <br />
    4. 4. Urban heartlands<br />
    5. 5. Rural idylls<br />
    6. 6. A very odd place<br />Hypothesis:<br />“60% of the English population might get superfast broadband from commercial operators”<br />And this is where we live!<br />
    7. 7. A very odd place<br />Hypothesis:<br />“60% of the English population might get superfast broadband from commercial operators”<br />Fixing the Copper?<br />The mean distances are too great<br />FttC? <br />There aren’t always cabinets<br />Wireless?<br />In some places but trees and valleys pose problems<br />Fibre is likely to be the only long term solution<br />
    8. 8. A very odd place<br />
    9. 9. So why 50p?<br />Most ISP’s only resell BT Wholsale’s offerings<br />Marginal investment<br />Little scope for technical innovation<br />Those that do invest, do in the same places<br />Typically along with Virgin and WiMAX operators<br />Expectations of market share must be small<br />Everyone only competes on price<br />Ever eroding margins<br />Ever shrinking funds to invest in the future<br />If the market won’t change, how is the UK compete?<br />
    10. 10. So why 50p?<br />50p generates a fund of £900m by 2016<br />Could a partial business case generate the same?<br />Could community investment mean a further slice?<br />Investments from those that are able as they do for wind farms?<br />Contracted trigger campaigns as security<br />And commercial finance has a role<br />Can we combine to create a solution?<br />
    11. 11. Rural v Urban<br /><ul><li>Digital Britain creates a model for rural areas
    12. 12. Its up to us to make sure it delivers NGA and not another sticking plaster
    13. 13. Lots of first generation choice
    14. 14. Evidence of sweating the last ounce of value from legacy networks
    15. 15. About half of BT’s ducts have enough space for three 25mm cables*
    16. 16. Enough to supply 17,000 homes in each duct
    17. 17. A new divide?</li></ul>* Source: Analysys Mason for Ofcom<br />

    21. 21. Today’s network<br />KCom<br />Openreach<br />Virgin<br />Media<br />
    22. 22. Tomorrow’s patchwork – Today!<br />Angus Glens<br />Scale and local differences are supported but masked from service providers<br />Cardenden<br />Fibrecity Dundee<br />WWHC<br />Baltic Quarter<br />Alston<br />County Durham<br />Manchester<br />Titanic Quarter<br />Digital Region<br />Hull<br />Corby<br />Fibrespeed<br />Birmingham<br />East Nottingham<br />Derby<br />Quintain<br />Walsall<br />2012<br />Lace Market<br />Gloucester<br />Fibrecity Bournemouth<br />BT Ebbsfleet<br />Bristol<br />Cornwall<br />Ashford<br />Bradnet<br />A patchwork sewn together by JON<br />
    23. 23. The JON network – transit on demand<br />Data-centres<br />Peering Aggregators<br />Content Services<br />Local Network<br />Regional JON hub<br />Datastream operators<br />Transit<br />LLU Operators<br />FTA Services<br />
    24. 24. The JON market<br />Remote Internet<br />“Free to Air” Internet<br />ISP<br />Email<br />Web<br />Voice<br />Transit<br />Local Network Provider (akin to “LLU”)<br />IP Access<br />Line Access<br />Customer<br />
    25. 25. What is broadband?<br />From esoteric to meaningless in four simple steps<br />
    26. 26. What might NGA be then?<br />NGA is not evolutionary <br />it shifts the paradigm<br />
    27. 27. What might NGA be then?<br />VDSL<br />ADSL2+<br />DOCSIS 3<br />Fibre/LTE<br />And a bit more<br />A bit faster<br />A bit more<br />Yes, its fast<br />Yes - probably<br />No<br />No<br />No<br />No<br />A bit<br />Yes<br />No<br />NGA is not a Technology<br />It’s a Mindset that defines technology<br />
    28. 28. Accelerating at the speed of light<br />STOP<br />IEEE target of 2010<br />
    29. 29. Summary<br />Definitions matter!<br />NGA is not just quicker – its transformational<br />Its not just a technology but an approach<br />And its much more than an evolutionary step<br />Digital Britain gives a direction for rural areas<br />BUT urban areas have their challenges too<br />Getting to the future will be a team effort<br />
