    I agree, it could really do with being reworded. While I'm not living in the UK ATM, I can still sign the petition using my mothers address. If you sharpen up the details I'll stick my scribble down for the hell of it.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand another petition that will be ignored wholeheartedly. BT are in the process of rolling out 21CN, what makes you think it's in the government's interest to apply pressure to them?

    A fair point indeed, although by the time they get ADSL2 DSLAMs in the roadside cabinets... the technology will be way out of date.

    At least a well implimented fibre network will last a good few decades.

    How long have copper phone lines been in? Half a century? More in some cases?

    Yeap and then we have the cables they scrimped and saved money on back in the seventies. Rather than use copper, they decided to use a much cheaper aluminium wiring which has cause nothing but headaches in some areas when people tried to get broadband.

    Rip all of these out and replace them with fibre

    "insentive" eh.

    Not worth signing. I'll be happy when BT or an LLU provider deploys VDSL2 or UDSL DSLAM's. I beleive VDSL2 will be part of BT's 21CN and afaik there are upgrade paths to UDSL.

    Fibre opens up far more doors than patching up the sorry state of affairs that is BTs copper/aluminium hybrid PSTN.

    I'd agree to the petition hands down if the case for it was improved.

    Now the problem i have with this is that its not the governments place to do this.

    Not too mention, what the hell do you need fiber for?

    hands up people on 24mbit broadband, what do they use it for? Hidef porn is a bit like been in a butchers shop, and on-demand tv is very restricted by content providers who (understandably) want it too be all "their" network.

    I'm a hudge fan of technology, but this imo, is pointless.

    It's not pointless, fibre has much more benefits than slamming more bits down the line. It's much more secure, in that it's far harder to illegally tap, it doesn't bleed EM signals, it's easier to isolate faults, and it can use any transport mechanism a LLU company wishes.

    The only mild downside it has is the cost, but with government supplementing its deployment it becomes an economically feasible choice, and we ALL benefit from it. Governments job is to develop the country as a whole, not just to rip us off financially and civilly.
