UK Broadband - Could Do Better ?

It seems while the big cities or towns are pretty much well taken care of when it comes to line speeds the rest of the UK is struggling on out of date connectivity

UK broadband is not fit for purpose and a major government rethink is needed, according to a business lobby group.

"The fact that we have around 45,000 businesses still on dial-up is unacceptable and many more throughout the country, even in London, are receiving poor service," said John Allan, chairman of the FSB. The harshest criticism was delivered by a Commons Public Accounts Committee report that concluded the government had "ripped off" taxpayers.

The FSB report found that coverage in rural areas was "either very poor or non-existent".

A similar situation occurs in the US where many face the routine of using dial up simply because they live away from the traditional money making centres, no doubt some company may invest in an area at some stage to lift it out of the dark ages but until then its down to the bigger monopolies doing the math and seeing a fair sized profit, and that's not always the case in some areas.
