Broadband in the UK

This article from those eagle-eyed watchdogs, Oftel has some interesting details about the UK cost of broadband and unmetered access compared to similar European countries and US states. Interestingly it looks like we have the cheapest general cost for unmetered dialup, and our broadband rate is quite low as well.

I got the chance to speak to a rep from the UK Online for Business project the other day about broadband prospects in the UK, and he was very keen and enthusiastic about mesh networking via Wifi, which are starting to pop up thanks to projects like Arwain, Consume, and <sarky>everybody’s favourite Internet telco, BT</sarky>.
