Achievement of the Digital Agenda targets for Broadband...
We are probably all familiar with these goals by now - but they are:-
1 - basic broadband to all Europeans by 2013
2 - all Europeans have access to much higher internet speeds of above 30 Mbps by 2020
3 - 50% or more of European households subscribe to internet access above 100 Mbps
But what do these goals mean in practice? The first two targets are primarily underpinned by infrastructure investment.
The third is subtly different in the use of the word 'subscribe'. So I have two questions where I would like some input from as many people as possible participating in this blog...
What will stop us achieving the infrastructure goals (1 & 2)?
How would you describe the benefit of subscribing to a 100Mbps service to a household consumer?
Dont want an in depth debate on this question - just some 'off the cuff' answers....
