The Government’s Communications Minister, Edward Vaizey (MP), has today told the House of Commons that the money they’ve already allocated should “give us the figure we need to get to 100%” (coverage of superfast broadband connectivity). We remain to be convinced.

The latest Q1-2014 global broadband report from UK telecoms analyst Point Topic has revealed that the world is now home to 690.1 million fixed line broadband subscribers (+1.9% in the quarter), which is up from +0.4% recorded at the end of 2013. It’s also the first quarter where the market share for older copper line broadband connections (e.g. ADSL, SDSL) has dipped below 50%.

No disputes over pay this year. Telecoms giant BT and the Communication Workers Union (CWU) have today agreed a new pay package that will last for the next three years (until January 2017) and see 47,000 of the operators “team members” (primary staff) receive a modest increase in pay.

The joint £94m Connecting Devon and Somerset programme in England, which is working to make BT’s “fibre optic broadband” (FTTC/P) service available to more than 90% of local premises by the end of 2016 and hopefully 100% by 2020, has today announced a list of the next 42 communities that will benefit from its roll-out.

According to ComReg, the Irish telecoms regulator, 43% of fixed broadband customers in Ireland receive sub-10Mbps speeds. But all that could change after Vodafone teamed up in a 50:50 Joint Venture with state-owned electricity firm ESB to splash €450m (£358m) on a nationwide roll-out of 1000Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Building (FTTB) technology. We can only hope they do the same here.

Telecoms giants Ericsson and Japanese operator NTT DOCOMO have taken their experimental 5G based Mobile Broadband technology a step forward by conducting one of the first live, over-the-air, demonstrations of the new service running at speeds of 5.8Gbps (Gigabits per second) using the 15GHz band of radio spectrum.
