Copper should be an extinct technology – and we are not the only ones who think so.
See what other people are saying about the outdated telecommunications infrastructure beneath our feet and the prehistoric guidelines that allow it to masquerade as fibre.
“Where you live should not determine your ability to work, or even start a business, with flexibility. The internet should be creating a more level playing field for businesses regardless of location, but uneven broadband coverage means the opposite is true.”
“The IoD’s call comes after a survey by CityFibre found that 78 per cent of Britons feel slowed down and frustrated by their internet connection, with young people and homeworkers feeling most aggrieved.”
“Gigaclear has thrown its weight behind CityFibre’s legal challenge for clearer broadband advertising rules.”
“Bad advertising standards are leading UK ISPs to exploit our “shocking acceptance of mediocre broadband.”
“CityFibre is currently leading its own campaign against misleading broadband advertising on the basis that the word “fibre” can currently be used to describe multiple types of product with vastly different average speeds.”
“Experts say dishonest advertising stymies innovation and artificially inflates the value of lower-grade connections.”
“With the CityFibre Coppersaurus in Milton Keynes as part of the PR push for the Vodafone Ultrafast roll-out, it may be that the dinosaur needs to expand its diet to include providers other than Openreach if the day is to be really called on adding words like fibre and optic to product names to try and make them sound like a Fibre to the Premises product.”
“A recent research conducted by CityFibre suggests that the UK is doing a terrible job at connectivity mainly because it still relies too much on copper infrastructure instead of the other high tech alternatives.”
