The communities who most need broadband are no longer willing to sit back and await solutions from London.
Three cheers for Cumbrians, and folks from North Yorkshire, who in the last 24 hours have turned this crap on its head.
Digging is about to commence in the first mile. People suddenly have realised what they need to do. There is going to be no waiting about for funding decisions.
Reality has struck that BT do not need to be involved, that every community can do its thing, and that all of this next gen stuff can belong to US and our next generations.
Am feeling quite upbeat......and hope that other communities around the country pick up on what is now going on here in the north......
