BT are about to upgrade the UK phone network in a project they are calling 21CN. Their internet serivce will be based around the ADSL2+ standard which provides up to 24mbps download speeds. Parts of the UK already have this and it is currently out of date technology. The rest of the world are replacing their copper phone lines with fibre to the home and have speeds of up to 100mbps internet and some parts even have speeds of 1gbps. The UK will lag behind in broadband speed if no fibre network isn't put in place. If you want a future proof network please sign the petition

I really hope this works. I so badly want fibre and wish BT would stop being lazy and just upgrading to ADSL2+ and actually sort out the problem that causes the need for ADSL2+ in the first place which is the copper lines.

No one is saying upgrade everyone overnight. The point is to upgrade to the best we can, instead of wasting money upgrading to already obsolete technology.

Would you buy a PC with Windows 98 on it or wait until you can afford one that will manage XP?

Over time, yes.

This is the sort of thing the government itself should be funding anyway. It would provide infinite benefit to the country. A lot more than new rules on what children should and shouldn't eat anyway.
