UK homes to get super-fast fibre

BBCNews reports in 'UK homes to get super-fast fibre' how the UK's first "fibre town" could go online in the autumn, delivering speeds of about 100Mbps. About time!!

Fibre firm H20 offers super-fast broadband via the sewers and either Bournemouth, Northampton or Dundee will be offered the service first...

...While other countries' plans for next generation broadband - offering speeds of up to 100Mbps - are well advanced, the UK has slipped down the speed league tables.

For consumers, super-fast net connections could create a range of new applications including on-demand high definition (HD) TV, DVD quality film downloads in minutes, online video messaging, CCTV home surveillance and HD gaming services.
