As someone who is proudly nostalgic about the good old days when (1) PC modems sang a charming tune when dialling-up and (2) the excitement built as a single image loaded line by line over five minutes, today's confirmation by Ofcom that it will not be imposing any price caps on fibre services means that my dream fades even further into the history books.
Why? Because immediately following Ofcom's announcement, BT gave the green light to a £12 billion investment in its fibre network and it is almost certain that other existing operators and new entrants to the market will shortly follow suit.
Great news for UK plc's connectivity, operators and investors alike! But come on, admit it; even you secretly miss that dialling tune...
Millions of homes across the UK are set to be upgraded to faster, more reliable broadband, under new regulations announced today by Ofcom that will help shape the UK’s full-fibre future.
