I look forward to seeing how this service is promoted and used in practice. I have observed many exercises to organise on-line consultations using a variety of tools, beginning with that organised by the Select Committee scrutinising the legislation to create Ofcom. That committee received approximately 500 on-line responses, which was about the maximum they could handle with the resources they had available.
P,S, I have been disappointed, but not surprised, to discover that some of the best known names in the on-line world have not spotted the importance of the DCIS consultation to the future of their UK operations.
I think this is because the jargon, including "DCIS Consultation" and "Digital Infrastructure", conceals the range of topics that need to be addressed: from social exclusion (inner cities and rural communities), through net neutrality (alias traffic and bandwidth rationing at network and interconnection bottlenecks) and planning (including to turn potential infra-structure clashes into shared security) to business models that ensure those who benefit reward those who pay.
