You know, that's really cack. Surely we can improve on that...

Our Culture Secretary has spoken out on the previous Labour government's proposals for a minimum coverage of 2MBps across the UK. The work involved to get some three million extra homes wired up to achieve even this speed would involve a whole lot of road digging.

A national "superfast" network would add to the GDP by some 18bn, but the costs and time involved in a "paltry" speed boost would be prohibitive, especially during our current predicament.

We'd be laughed away from Asia should we ever show our faces

    A pretty cool idea, I wouldn't mind having something like that here... Too bad money's always gotta be a factor. Damn money, it creates so many problems for us.
