The European Commission (EC) has today opened a new consultation that aims to cut the costs of broadband investment by 25% and thus make it cheaper to deploy new networks for “high speed internet” in the EU. Priority will be given to reducing the costs associated with civil engineering (i.e. digging up roads to lay fibre optic cable), which can account for up to 80% of the total cost.

The Post Office has announced that the Fair Usage Policy (FUP) on its Broadband Extra package, which claims to offer “unlimited monthly downloads“, will be changed from 1st June 2012 to impose a soft usage restriction of 100GB (GigaBytes) per month. Customers who repeatedly go beyond this will now be at risk from an unspecified reduction in their internet speeds.
