    They make out like it's no major hurry and we have a "competitive infrastructure" now, and that they just need to make sure it will continue to be like that in the future. Little do they know that our infrastructure is actually crap compared to Europe, the Far East, and the US. Probably other places too. I know New Zealand has a poor internet infrastructure like ours, and probably Antarctica do too. Maybe that's where they use as our benchmark.

    i think they know about it but they can abuse the fact that a big proportion of the country doesnt.

    Sort of explains everything, doesn't it.

    I mean, if they can't see the state of the country's broadband catastrophe, then that fact clears up why they are so crap at sorting the stuff that needs more than a couple of brain cells to think about.

    It just beggars belief - no wonder these 'superior' types like their horses so much - they have an affinity with blinkers, too

    I think its quite simple....

    Cancel the order for those pointless nukes, we DON'T NEED THEM!!!! It will save billions, imagine the infrastructure and what it would do for us the people if they invested all that money in broadband...

    Personally I wouldn't invest all those billions on the internet, but just a small part of it would catapult us to the premier division of countries regarding the net. The web is the future and no doubt in 15 years time it will be vastly different to what we think it will be like now... but one thing is for certain the better our infrrastructure the better it will be for everyone.
