When it Comes to Broadband, UK Still A Laggard

  1. If you go to most urban areas, then most people, even those on benefits, have access to relatively fast broadband (2mb or above) at home – although because much of it is based on BT’s old copper network, it still tails off as you get further from an exchange. The digital cable network alternatives only came to my area (west of London) in the last 4/5 years. Those not connected tend to be either a) In rural areas – hard to bring any new wiring to, b) In the other 50’s mark – a group only just catching up or c) Just plain not interested – there are still plenty just getting the idea.
    3G phone networks may start to bridge the gap for the rural areas.
