Re: Small increase in punters
Thanks for the down votes - I would have thought everyone would like faster broadband.
Phil O' - That's what exactly Managing Directors said when BT brought out ISDN - why do we need to so much bandwidth when 56K is enough.
Similar to what BT stated at the HoL committee on broadband speeds in 2011 when BT was encouraged to rollout 2Mb to every neighbourhood.
Where would Amazon / Tesno shopping be now if those MD's had the popular view that 56K was fast enough!!
If the speeds were faster - there would be a lot more consumer businesses on line.
The economy would be stronger and more people in work.
For those who do not have access to Cable, I cannot see why you need a copper line to have fibre. It makes no sense. Even in new build houses, they are laying copper WHYWHYWHY - Just put the f'king fibre to the new houses. This is an example of BT gone wrong.
BT are putting up line prices not because they are more expensive to maintain, but because people and businesses are making less land line calls. If BT can't cope with providing a national infrastructure suitable for this century, then give someone else an opportunity to improve this nation.
