10Mbps universal broadband target is too low, says KCom
Kcom has called for the government to set more ambitious broadband targets. Policymakers want to implement a new broadband Universal Service Obligation (USO) that ensures everyone in Britain is able to access minimum speeds of 10Mbps by 2020. However, Kcom is concerned that the USO is “not enough” and believes more needs to be done to achieve an ultrafast broadband infrastructure in the UK.
Speaking to the Register, Chief Executive Bill Halbert said this is “one of the most important things we can achieve as a country”.
“One way or another we have to get to a position where we have strategically important infrastructure everywhere,” he commented.
