Similar proposals have been on the discussion board for some time even without EU involvement

Even before that!

I can remember seeing a BT discussiondocument sometime around the very late 90's and asked for comment or contributions to the final version. It did not say what the future technology would be but that buildings should have provision for the easy installation of the main comms services through ducting, small frames, power &c.

In reply to a post by don0301:

Wouldn't be the first time. They also forced through the A55 North Wales Expressway many years ago and more recently (and relevantly) the 'fibre broadband' upgrades in Cornwall. The EU has done (or forced to be done) many useful thinks here in Blighty. The only problem is that their good works might be more than offset by their idiocy and costly bureaucracy. It just goes to prove that there's a good side to everyone if you look close enough smile
