Ofcom: Legal separation will force Openreach to eat more fibre


I've just done a little calculation. For 20 million homes, 2000 installation engineers and if each engineer does 4 homes per day without holidays and working weekends, then it would take 7 years to connect fibre to every home. I don't think people realise the scale of any changes to the system. This maybe why BT is using its existing copper lines first before going the FTTP route.


Premise or Premises

"Fibre to the Premise" or "Fibre to the Premises". I didn't think there was a singular of Premises. Think of licensed premises for just a single pub.

Banning handheld phone use by drivers had NO effect on accident rate - study


Talking and Walking

People can't even walk safely whilst talking on the phone. Try negotiating a double fire door at work with someone in the phone! It could be that maybe driving needs less attention than walking.

I've found that if I'm taking to someone sitting next to me, then they can see the reasons why I sometimes don't respond immediately. Maybe I'm overtaking or there's a roadblock ahead.
