House of Lords Broadband Report

It seems that the House of Lords Select Committee on Communications did heed the messages from Peter Cochrane’s hearing in March. Their final report is published today. If you were not able to watch the video of Peter’s compelling evidence, then please do read the transcript contained in the full corrected written evidence document. For highlights and commentary on the report see Lords slam government’s strategy-free broadband plan.

Listen to the Ed Vaizey interview on BBC Radio 4 Today Programme, broadcast this morning (MP3 podcast).

    Perhaps we should follow Appleton’s example if we require reliable symmetric services available throughout the area:-
