this is one article l agree with wholeheartedly! and in all honesty l believe Lord Carter doesnt have the expertise to fill in the position he holds...

the fact they suggested mobile broadband would be the key to get rural coverage just gobsmacked me, at the moment lm forced to use such a method to connect and l for one know that it maybe an option to keep me online temporarily but its not an alliterative to fixed line services, the only time it works well is between the hours of midnight and 9am the rest of the time the speed is crappy at best.. as for the 2meg part lve never come close to hitting it, the networks just havent got the capacity!

exactly.. and after re-reading this article lve also thought of another point.

all the government are doing is passing the buck... BT dont want to spend any more on rural infrastructure so the government expect mobile broadband to foot the bill, after all it doesnt need cables.. tho as said before they lack the insight and knowledge of the technology, and that main lack of foresight is "capacity" which is severely lacking in rural areas, when l was in basingstoke granted my connection speed was reasonable at peak times, but it came nowhere near the 2meg mark.. not even 1meg until after midnight.
