Default Vodafone to bring 1 gigabit fibre to 5 million homes

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-41931492

Openreach say they welcome the competition - I doubt it when their 'fibre' products are still stuck in the slow lane for millions

Fuck off with this obsession with pointlessly fast broadbnd for a small number of people and progressively shorter internet for everyone else.

Pointlessly fast? It isn't so long ago that 1Mb was considered a high end premium speed and the idea of speeds 80+ times that down a phone line being not uncommon would have seemed fantastical, but here we are and it's still not enough to avoid waiting many hours for today's large downloads to finish. eg. video games are 100GB+ now and often have patches in the tens of GBs.

I agree what Vodafone are doing will probably only benefit those in major urban environments. I don't think it's an either/or thing though.

A friend has been working on this - the planned rollout is much bigger than the initial announcement.

It's good I think, eventually that speed will be needed and probably sooner than we think so get it started. There's probably more economic benefits to be made improving the network for other parts of the country though.

Well where do you draw the line? I get we’ve gone from 1 to 50/80 being normal etc, but that’s come with us going from vhs tapes from a shop to being able to stream 4K stuff. If we all have internet that’s good enough to stream 4K to a couple of computers isn’t that basically sufficient? It’s not as though we’re all going to be watching 80k stuff in our toilets whilst doing a shit. At some point it’s sufficient and becomes pointlessly fast, no?

Especially if you think about where we’re going to be with mobile broadband with 5g, 6g, etc etc. Reminds me of the Caribbean where they spent shit loads on telephone infrastructure right before mobiles took off .

I'd be delighted with 80Mb but it would still take ~3 hours to download the 100GB example. (Would take me about 20 hours currently...fml)

And unfortunately we don't 'all' have internet that's good enough, millions in the UK are on single figure Mb/s, even low single figures. In the CURRENT YEAR™ it's archaic tbh

Mobile has its place but will never be as good as wired (I know for some people who have really shit fibre speeds, mobile is already better, but I mean all things being equal, obviously.)

They should move somewhere less shit then - I live in the middle of asspiss nowhere and probably get 20Mb.
