Re: Not this bloody chestnut again

No, no, no. The real issue (in out-of-town locations) is the amount of tax-payers money that has been spent under BDUK and the apparent total lack of oversight and/or due diligence of the contracts which have been signed with BT.

The general "upgrade" strategy under BDUK seems to be "put in a fiber cabinet next to the PCP"* without any form of engineering assessment being taken to see if the number of properties able to get a reasonable level of service from the PCP represents value for money.

*There are some exceptions - mainly outlying regions which were only able to use dialup.
