We have to start making this a major issue that matters and get the right policies in place through a) education of the masses during the run-up to the next election, and b) policy delivery, preferably before but also post-election, whoever is elected.
The next election will occur within months of the UK Olympics. Without a decent national communications infrastructure, our Olympics could be a disaster. Every visitor, whichever venue they visit, will expect wi-fi and true broadband in cafes, pubs, venues, B and B, hotels, train stations, etc etc. They will be UPLOADING pictures and videos. Can our network cope??? Can we offer what they are accustomed to at home? Will we seem like a 3rd world broadband nation, even in 2012?
Join us in:
* mapping where the current MPs stand on the issue
* getting FTTH on every party's manifesto
* explaining next gen FTTH broadband in clear, simple, plain English and standard terminology
* by the time of OR LONG BEFORE the next election.
You heard it here first ....;o)
