100Mbit/s broadband soon to reach UK homes

For too long, other nations have enjoyed faster broadband speeds than the UK. But now it seems 100Mbit/s broadband isn't that far off - at least for some parts of the UK. The first so-called "fibre town" could go online by the autumn.

The word 'fibre' is the key here; such high speeds require fibre cabling to be laid. The reason for the quick launch date is that fibre firm H20 has come up with a novel way to lay the fibre - in sewers. According to BBC News, the company has already laid some cabling for councils in Bournemouth, Northampton and Dundee, so one of those towns will be selected first."

The story is too old to be commented.

Holy crap. We'd better start installing some 1 Gigabyte connections fast. We can't let those Brits pass us.
