What will be the most important broadband development of 2014?

Improve rural broadband connectivity.

I went for the rural broadband option.

It will be the most important broadband development if it happens but I expect to be still getting <2Mb this time next year.

I think that, were there a parallel Poll asking what would be the least likely developments in 2014, then Advances in Rural Broadband speeds would be my choice.

I agree with those who opted for improved rural broadband. It would work wonders for people who run small businesses from relatively remote country areas, and remove the incredible frustration from online tasks that city dwellers like me breeze through in seconds.

I voted for improved rural broadband as well but, I suspect, where I live it will be none of the above, again.

I'm with fm for a change.

I'd like to get just one third of the advertised speed.

less adverts and more speedier downloads

Perhaps, the big-boys will get together, and create an 'idiot proof' seamless and hassle-free world of internet browsing [no hackers, phishers, scammers ...etc], encompassing updates 'n' the necessary security housekeeping ... all in one big broadband package!

PS. I feel/sense a song-title in the air ... I just can't put my finger on it ;o]

"less adverts and more speedier downloads"

Advertising is on individual websites - it has nothing to do with your broadband supplier.

Downloads consume bandwidth, and that costs money - someone has to pay.

No, they won't, and the song is 'Some day over the rainbow'.
