A quote of £152,000 for rural broadband

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

Mike Hooper lives in Cumbria, and currently gets 4Mbps broadband speeds. He told the BBC he was given a quote of £152,000 to provide fibre broadband to his home and five neighbouring properties.

Another person, living in south Cheshire - only 2.5 miles from the telephone exchange - told they BBC they were quoted £133,000.

"While the cost of some connections will be high due to the remoteness of any of these premises, we are concerned that BT may not be complying with the regulatory conditions correctly where it assesses excess costs for a given connection," said Ofcom.

I miss the old 'dial up'... all the clunking and clicking while connecting.

Also websites were so polite then, they always greet you with a "hello" and "welcome"
