At some point the UK is going to have to put out Fibre networks in places like South Korea and japan you can easily get 100Mbps+ as standard (however the logistics in those countries are vastly different) , the question is what is the best option, is there a best option?

Currently we all have broadband which is between 1Mbps and 20Mbps, realistically you will never get 20 thought however I believe the advertising standards agency is changing the regulation so the companies have to give a realistic average speed of what you get rather than what you theoretically (but actually will never) get.

Option 1 is to put it to a routing box which will supply a whole neighbour hood, this is of course the cheapest, but also never gives you the actually speed of fibre due to what is know as the last mile problem which is where the last mile or less of the cable is slow and therefore limits the bandwidth you can receive.

The second option is to have a share cable to all the houses costing a lot more but giving you a decent speed internet meaning you can do whatever you want with it such as download HD movies and watch porn all day, which is clearly what the internet was designed for, in more prosperous usages it will also increase the rate of video conferencing and the ability for people to work from home logging into there companies networks. Other advantages also include the uptake of cloud computing meaning you won't have to store all your data on your own computer which might become corrupted and will be able to upload it to a massive server regularly to back it up.

The third option is to put a cable to everyone's house which will give you all the features just a lot faster, 2-4x faster in fact.

My personal opinion is all of them but for different places, fibre to street level should go out to the rural areas as to keep them in the loop but not to make the cost per head of the service ridiculously high. Everyone else should get a shared connection to their house giving them 250-500Mbps, which the ability in the future for the company to attach a fibre to each house to upgrade it and with that plan in mind, but it would be better to get it out to the most people possible first.

50Mbps will be good enough for most, it will just take 10 minutes instead of 1 to download the video you want to watch and things like HD Internet TV and cloud computing won't be as readily up taken in more rural areas, but if you get fibre out to the cities and the suburbs the there will still be a vast uptake.

Individual fibre is the way to go imo. Whatever you do it needs to be futureproof, otherwise you'll end up spending twice as much money constantly upgrading the networks. I mean, we're still laying cables for ADSL2+ - what use is that? We're wasting all this money on laying old technology which is only going to get replaced in the next few years anyway. Get a 1Gb connection linked up to everyone's house (a proper one at that, not one that only hits 1Gbps when no one else on the street is using the net) and we'll be sorted for years to come. Sod the expense. It'll give the government less money to waste on pointless projects.

Because you could fund the whole NHS education budget for a year?

Think people are failing to realise how much 28bn is.

I mean where do you think the 28bn is going to come from?
