"Every home in the UK to have access to super-fast broadband". That word "every" could come back to haunt him. Does he really mean that every rural cottage, mid Dartmoor, the Outer Hebrides and the Scilly Isles will be able to have super-fast broadband. What is meant by "access to" is that the same as have and at what cost per household?
were knee high to a laptop BT approached Margaret Thatcher's government with a plan - the company offered to create an infrastructure that would have seen every UK home having access to a fast internet connection. The trade off was that BT would have a franchise to push service offerings down the pipe for a certain period, so we would all have seen our web pages containing ads.
The government refused, mainly because Mrs. T. was being courted by the cable companies.
The world moved on, and here we are, being told that we can be 'the world leader in the digital economy' - whatever that means - within 10 years.
All I can say is that people had better get a move on - some other countries are leaving us behind as I write.
It's all a big brother plan so they can take control of your webcam, activate your mike and record everything you say about the government. If you say something derisive about the government it will be noted in a file by MI5. It will be linked to your Personal Government Webpage so they can check and adjust any benefits you get depending on wehter you said something nice about the PM or insulted him.
