I live in the relative centre of Bristol (one of apparently our country's great tech cities). I live in a new housing estate built only 2.5 years ago. I live less than 50 metres from one of the nations largest and newest 'Superhospitals'. AND I live about 100 metres from the main fibre backbone that travels up the infamous Gloucester Rd.
My maximum broadband speed? 2Mbps.
In their vast wisdom, no one put down any new fibre when the housing estate was made, and the cabinet serving the estate, which sits just 50 metres from the main backbone, isnt wired up to it.
My heart bleeds for all the people living out in the middle of nowhere who can ONLY get 2Mbps. I live in one of the country's 'tech' cities, and i cant get any better either!
