Connection news

There are several options available to the UK as the government prepares to unveil plans to connect the whole of the country to broadband.

Stephen Carter is about to release his Digital Britain report which is widely expected to map out the way to nationwide broadband access.

Managing Director of Edd Dawson has pointed out that fibre-optic broadband may not be the cheapest technology to use, but was quick to stress the possible downfalls of other methods.

He commented: "The simplest solution is satellite, but this brings issue in terms of lag which make it less suitable for certain applications such as gaming.

"Mobile broadband would likely be a cheaper option compared to a wired option, but would still require a large investment."

It is thought that Lord Carter will extend universal service obligation (USO) to oblige broadband providers to supply every UK citizen with a connection.
