About time councils put their foot down
and insisted that ALL new housing developments have FTTP from the outset.
A friend of mine moved into a new development last year and could only get 2Mb ADSL. That didn't last long because they (like most of their neighbours) went totally mobile getting 4G connectivity. There was a Mast 200yds down the road so don't tell me that there was no high speed connectivity available locally.
a few councils putting this as a requirement for granting planning permission might get the whole FTTP movement kickstarted.
