Only 8% of homes can get ‘gold standard of broadband’ – but those few see it as a necessity.
Labour’s plan to provide free full-fibre broadband to every home and business is an eye-catching offer to potential voters. But while the scheme has been labelled “fantasy economics” by critics, people who already enjoy ultra-fast broadband view it as invaluable.
Like the roll-out of 5G for mobile phones, full-fibre broadband is the much-hyped next big thing for internet connectivity. It will mean speeds of more than one gigabit per second, letting users download an HD movie in under 50 seconds.
Toople PLC (LON:TOOP) offers business broadband, fiber, Ethernet first mile and Ethernet data, business mobile phones, cloud PBX and SIP Trunking, and traditional services. Toople works with the big players in the market such as Vodafone & BT.
