So imagine the outcome of this - if it actually materialises. The country gets one lowest common denominator broadband provider and no competition as they will have all died out.
Net result, everyone gets TalkTalk level Internet access and no option to do anything about it.
So, I won't be wanting to go this route, sounds like a reason not to vote for them ...
I wish the politicians (all of them) would stop promising the world when its clear that they can't do the things that we really want them to - like running the country well.- give us a decent health service without the waiting lists, roads without potholes and service roles (police, teachers, etc) that are paid well for what they do.
