I would just like them to sort out the "last mile" so that I could get the 8meg connection that I pay my ISP for. Or even the 4 meg that BT said I could get rather than the 2 that I get in real life.

Once analogue TV is switched off, the government is going to flog most of that spectrum to mobile phone operators to use for mobile broadband. You might find the last mile in fact becomes "the last few hundred metres from your nearest phone mast".

You mean I might actually get a phone signal within half a mile of my home?

The real question here is what can you do with it, if more of your customers can download more?

If you are selling items, give them bigger images. I do a 1500 pixel image now as standard.

Maybe go the video route, you are talking good quality now.
