I think some speeds are something of a luxury for gamers.
It Internet Banking, Email and basic surfing is the next Human Right then
quite a modest speed would surely suffice. My WiFi receiver in my old
laptop limits me.
But its only acceptable because there are no bottlenecks. On a highly
congested system the problem is not a slow steady speed but lengthy
periods where you may not get any response. This is not ideal when
internet banking and you are transferring funds when the system appears
to go dead leaving you unsure if the transaction has completed.
For most people, most of the time, modest speeds are enough to do browsing,
It is gaming, video etc which needs the bandwidth.
While the idea of free high speed Internet is appealing, is it justified so
people can watch Strictly and play computer games ?
The renta mob who will fall for this nonsense are the same people who will
protest against RF exposure from telephone masts etc yet go home and sit
for hours playing stupid games etc on their laptops.
My neighbours complain about poor broadband, personally I've never had
any problem with my (3G only) mobile signal for internet access. A few

attempt to round up support for FTTP in the village. Then I relised that
what these people want is not an essential level service for a farm or
home-based business but being able to watch netflicks all day.
Mmm. depends. With a thick client you dont need a lot of bandwith for games.
I dont get killed by only having a 5Mbps link
Honestly I am running today on 1.3Mbps and happy to get it as yesterday
had nothing...and its very useable for browsing.
Streaming HD - not so much.

You seem to be overlooking the fact that for many business applications
upload speed is more important than download speed. I certainly wouldn't
want to do a major update to a large remotely hosted e-commerce site at
3G, or even 4G speeds.
Yes he is. Were you asleep when McDonnell announced that Labour would
force all private companies to give 10% of their business to their
employees in the form of free shares ?.
That's 10% for starters.

Why should say CompanyA employees get a share of profits if CompanyA are

Should these shares be conted as part of their salery ?
Will the employees be able to sell their shares ?
