    Question Jeremy Hunt hands reins to Maria Miller - BDUK has a new face

    Here's a link to an Ian Grant article which goes over old, familiar ground about what exactly BDUK may or may not deliver.

    What broadband gap is the government funding?

    What is undeniably clear, is the statement Ian quotes from the DCMS BDUK targets:

    Leave aside the weasel words "potential" and"headline" and consider this: "Our investment will help provide 90% of homes and businesses with access to superfast broadband and for everyone in the UK to have access to at least 2Mbps." What percentage of the population will receive a speed between 2 and 24Mbps?
    Weasel words indeed .... how hard indeed it is, to find the truth in a commercial market where the "community" is the consumer, and the corporate shareholder the benefactor. Sigh.
