But that's interesting if you do the maths.
If you round up the number of homes in the UK to 30 million you would be looking at around £30 billion to roll out fibre to the home.
That doesn't even amount to the rumoured £50 billion value of scrap copper in the BT network. Then you offset the cost of the billions that have been spent on ADSL & FTTC, plus the massive maintenance costs on the old copper network.
If it was a politician making up figures to justify this you could factor in billions of £'s to be saved by the country being better connected, reduced traffic on the roads and no need for a $42 billion train track.
