  • as ever when you do this presentation I feel the need to correct you. Half the UK can't get decent connections. Pipes are EXTREMELY important. Yes I know people are more important than ANYTHING else, but we are talking digital here, and if they can't get online easily then they turn off. We need next gen fibre to the home. for all the people. Not just the ones in cities. Seeing as how you love statistics, 90% of the UK land mass can't get the 2 meg, which equates to 40% of the population. Many in urban areas also have crap connections. BT are planning to roll out more copper, the BET scam. If you don't use your influence to let people know these facts then you aren't doing digital inclusion any favours. Pipes are crucial to the cause.
