Re: There needs to be a concerted push to bring FTTP to all areas

How about insisting that they get fibre too.

Should have done that at least ten years ago. A foresighted government (haha) would've done it twenty years ago. Interestingly BT did offer to do that in the 80s in exchange for TV broadcast rights but Maggie turned 'em down and created the cable market instead.

Would be interesting to know what the residential internet situation in the UK would be in an alternative universe where Maggie agreed to BT's request.
