 ;D  When I was leaving BT for IDNet they told me that my 4K speed was perfectly adequate and could not understand why I wanted to leave.

5G won't ever give you the 10Gbps that fibre would give you. (Read up on the Shannon-Hartley theorem.)

I wonder, though, if in the same way that many now accept lower sound quality for the convenience of digital music, a speed compromise would be acceptable for the convenience of full 5G coverage?

If services such as 5G takes off, and continues to evolve and improve, then maybe we won't even need fibre broadband by 2030?

... and after last night's power cut it's resynched at the 40Mbps profile limit, and after it's brief rise the upload is back down where it was.

Bouncing around like a tennis ball all over the shop. Reality v hype!  :thumb: At least this year the broadband might not be dropping with the temperature (even if the electricity is). That's progress, after a decade. Patience pays, after all.

The initial TV reports indicated that they were talking full FTTP!
Full FTTP availabilty by 2030 should be a minimum requirement on OpenReach anyway.

If it's subsidised out of taxes, should not the government receive some sort of shareholding?

Methinks that if in some nightmare scenario they actually had to honor this promise it would very quickly row back to so many conditions, technical problems, geographical limitations etc etc etc that it would become obvious that it's only intended for the ground down huddled masses in their mill workers cottages in the cities. Anyone living in the country will be one  of the stinking rich mill owners who should be paying 99% tax to pay for the new britain.

George Orwell must be spinning......... :'(

Nationalising BT would be a disaster for pension funds and small investors many of whom are BT employees.  McDonnell has said that Parliament would decide how much a Labour government would pay for the shares but it would be below market value.
