You can't please all the people all of the time...
No country has managed a decent roll out of fibre while meeting all of the things that we want - i.e. future proof investment in the future, covering rural and urban alike, not locking in a single monopoly and it not costing the earth (remember, our public finances are not in the best of health).
Oz - great coverage and lots of promises of wholesale passive and active access, but it's costing $11bn - and that's after the sell off of the newly created public sector telco (its up to $40bn otherwise)
Germany - DT is partly owned by the government and will be an effective monoply. Not sure we want to use the same model with BT
Holland - Regge fibre et al are good, but rural coverage is not as good as we want (and they don't have the same rural challenge we have)
Hong Kong & Singapore - They're city states, there isn't really any rural challenge at all
New Zealand - yet to prove anything really
Nordics - great example of throwing cash at it to fix the issue
Be nice to the BDUK guys - it's not an easy problem to solve.
