There is not yet a pressing demand for super-fast broadband in the UK, says technology expert after testing out 100Mb connection.
Although super-fast cable broadband has many advantages, there is not yet a pressing need for 100Mb services in the UK, according to one expert.
Rory Cellan-Jones of the BBC travelled to Wembley, London, to try out a 100Mb broadband connection at a new housing development.
He explained that residents in Wembley City, close to the national football stadium, pay for 8Mb, 16Mb or 32Mb, with the option of 100Mb for £1 extra per 30 minutes online.
The reason given for the pricing plan was that there is not yet a huge demand for the lightning-quick connections - a sentiment Mr Cellan-Jones shares.
He said: "This kind of speed will only spread slowly across Britain - it's relatively cheap to lay fibre into new homes, but costs a fortune to dig up the streets and bring fast broadband to everyone."
