Re: Not all of London has 'superfast' Broadband

"Swisscom, like BT, has a universal service obligation"

As I understand it, BT's universal service obligation was and is only for voice (and maybe 28k8 for data, ie fairly bog standard analog stuff, irrelevant to 99% of modern requirements).

Last time I looked, the UK still has no legislated broadband USO, Correction welcome. We do have lots of politicians and industry players hand wringing, which mysteriously results in taxpayer's money (BDUK etc) going almost exclusively to BT.

Don't trains run on time in Switzerland? How do they manage the efficient and affordable movement of people and data?
