Disgraceful waste of our money
Had a go at our County Councillor (Kent) when he was trumpeting this BDUK money.
I pointed out that BT always say that things just aren't commercially viable, drag their heels, and then all of a sudden when either:
i) the profitability is staring them in the face
ii) competition arrives
it all starts happening.
I objected to my money being spent to (effectively) contribute to BT's profits.
He didn't see what I was on about, kept trumpeting how people who wouldn't get BB otherwise would get it. I said that, in reality, they would get it too, maybe a little later, but arrive it would.
This from a Government that claims to support the free market. Not, methinks.
