My posts about: Ofcom
Ofcom has revealed that people don't get the broadband speeds they pay for. Well, duh. Here's a timeline of how we already know that. Their research isn't groundbreaking or new or revealing something for the first time, as is being claimed. What we need is action: ISPs should be forced to publish a typical range of speeds rather than an upto speed that no one can get.
Ofcom probably thought it was a great idea to get Stephen Fry to one of its Digital Britain panel discussions. Sadly for them, he launched a scathing assault on the whole strategy, saying he was 'literally baffled' by it and he thought the whole thing pointless. Here's the transcript of what he said.
