Last week saw the government publish its proposals about how it will define the Universal Service Obligation for Broadband rollout.
They propose guaranteeing a service for 95% of the country so somewhat less than universal! Inevitably I fear that a chunk of that remaining 5% will be in the isles. It is an unacceptable position and I shall continue to pursue it with ministers. The obligation will not be available for anyone until 2020 so there is still time for a change of heart.
