The Guardian takes a long look at not just the speed of broadband, but with comments like:
“At which point, issues of straightforward ideology start to take over. A broadband connection could become “a universal right”, says the Lords committee chairman, Lord Inglewood. What kind of policy leaves out 10% of the country – the elderly, the poor, the underclass who raise so many fears and challenges? What about the rolling acres of rural Britain which need broadband and commerce to save them from depopulation? It’s the digital divide opening wide again. If TV’s true future is broadband, then whole communities may be excluded from great national moments. Cue topical Olympics reference. Cue, also, a much closer scrutiny of broadband’s fundamental benefits.”
The Guardian also asks, where is the high speed society taking us?
