Conservatives Pledge Fibre Optic Broadband for All

Posted: 06th Jan, 2009 By: MarkJ
The leader of the Conservative party, David Cameron, has given his backing to government proposals that could force UK operators (i.e. not just BT) into making sure that every UK home has access to at least a "basic" 2Mbps broadband service.

However Cameron appeared to go one step further and promised to make next-generation super fast fibre optic broadband services available to every UK home by 2018, provided they get elected of course.

Cameron believes this could be achieved by making investment in fibre networks an attractive possibility for telecoms companies, though not unlike Gordon Brown's own plans he did not specify precisely what that would entail.

Still, regardless of any particular political affiliations our readers may hold, all can at least agree that having political parties take note of and compete over such a crucial issue is good news. Further details on Labours plans are expected to surface later this month.
