Dialup closure & BDUK on the radio

Mr Saffron at 35 mins followed by Ed Vaizey.

Contemplate the madness of running an online business from an inadequate connection, not even using remote desktops to a server in a data centre.

Other dialup services are still available.

I know of some locations where they still have their old Business Highway service running albeit just now called ISDN2e. Don't know if they are to have service discontinued.
