There is no reason why a fibre link cannot be given to every resident in the UK. like copper links are.now. Each link using single mode firbe has a virtually unlimited bandwidth spectrum.
Physical links are reliable and can be used for emergency calls. Yes, the back haul at the moment will be only 10 Mb/s, this is due to the limited number of customers, but they will get 10 Mbit/s regardless how far away they are. Later as the network size and customers are increased, then so will the back haul speeds. It is a simple matter to increase the backhaul links and equipment . If you give each customer a 1000 Mbit/s link now then upgrading in the future is not a problem.
I would not have any objection if these customers were provided with 1000 Mbit/s wireless links and were reliable enough to carry emergency services.
The fact is you cannot provide individual 1000 Mbit/s wireless links to every dwelling now, it maybe possible later, but these residents deserve to have service now not in 6 or 10 years time.
Does anybody really understand what harm is being done to the UK whilst millions of homes have little or no broadband, I doubt it. Where would the industrial revolution be now if wew kept on using Canels instead on developing railways.
If the last mile links are large, and the network were structured as BT is now then you would only need to provide around 7000 backhaul links to the exchanges, upgrading equipment is not a problem either.
Part of our tender bid is that we provide ducts to renew electricity services and cables. The disruption this would save in future roadwarks would more than offset the cost of 1000 Mbit/s fibre provision.
