In the UK around 3 million homes have broadband speeds of less than 2Mbps according to a recent survey commissioned by the BBC.

The government has promised all homes in the UK with speeds of at least 2Mbps by 2012. This to me is a long way off and something that needs to be addressed a little bit quicker. The 'notspots' as they are called are not limited to just rural areas but also in major towns and cities. It all depends how far you are away from the telephone exchange if you are using any ISP services that use a BT phone line. The further from the exchange the slower the speed.ISP's like Virgin Media transmit their broadband via fiber optic cable which is much faster and is not determined by where you live in relation to the telephone exchange. Maybe installing wi-max mast's throughout the country will be the cheaper option than to have to install miles of cable nationwide.
