The project manager for Shetland Telecom, which is busy improving internet capacity on the remote Shetland Islands via a new fibre optic link with Scotland, has told ISPreview.co.uk that it’s “complete madness” for the UK government to spend millions attempting to “squeeze more life” out of BT’s existing copper broadband ISP network.

Ofcom’s latest broadband speeds report (released this week) also includes a unique and useful insight into the Latency (Ping) and Packet Loss performance of the UK’s largest ISPs, which can have a serious impact upon the performance of specific internet applications (e.g. online video games, Skype etc.).

Indeed over the past few years this has become quite a common misconception, not least because there is a lack of hard data to map the problem with any real accuracy.
