Critique of new UK administration’s broadband plans

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Left Foot Forward asked me to critique the broadband plans within the new UK government administation’s programme at the end of the last week. It seemed timely to wrap this in with a quick post-election review of the digital economy act. When I kicked the tyres I found that it was essentially more of the same and some of the thorny issues that affect broadband infrastructure where either under-resourced or (like cell tower planning debacle) failed to be addressed at all.

It was blatantly obvious to me that parliament as a whole is digitally illiterate.

You can find Coalition’s super-broadband plan unworkable over at Left Foot Forward.
