Labour: Free British broadband for country if we win general election

Commander Lard

Unless your also in an Alt.net provider location or Virgin Media cable area, where openreach will happily install fibre to attempt to oust their competition and enter into price and speed wars, it's the area's where there is no competition to openreach that you find there's no hurry to invest.....

Not withstanding the impact to all those people employed within the telcom industry at Sky, Virgin, TalkTalk, Vodafone and countless other smaller ISP's that find they suddenly are out of a job when the government starts giving broadband away and wipes out huge swathes of companies, the cost to the economy will be significant if this goes through and means only one viable ISP can operate in the UK, with no choice and absolutely no way to influence the market! A fanciful idea, that isn't viable
