What's the real broadband target then?
On Monday I listened to Prime Minister Gordon Brown outline his vision for a Digital Britain. I commented at the time on his elevation of the penetration target for high-speed broadband across the UK from 90% of people having access to 100%.
When I was listening to the Chancellor give his budget speech today I did a double-take when I heard him talk of a 90% target for high-speed broadband access across the UK. Was I wrong? I was talking about it on Twitter to see if I had misheard anything.
No. The Chancellor certainly had indicated there is a 90% target. But one look at the number ten website shows that on Monday the Prime Minister really did offer 100% as the target.
Clearly the speech-writers of the Chancellor and Prime Minister are not as well connected as we might hope rural business can be in future.
