One good policy recommendation!

We should be grateful for the fact that he has put Universal Broadband on the agenda.

To achieve it, Ofcoms rulebook needs to be re-written from defining markets as fixed and mobile calls to a single form of managing data transport - our bits. Much of the 1990's dogma needs to be dropped.
