"Superfast broadband isn’t as expensive as some users might think, with prices starting at £16 per month plus £15 for line rental"
Communications Minister Ed Vaizey said: "Ofcom reported only a few weeks ago that 73% of the UK already has access to superfast broadband and that the UK now has the best superfast coverage of all five leading European economies, as well as the highest take-up rate. Government is investing £780m to take superfast broadband to 95% of the UK by 2017 and the rollout is well under way, with more than 20,000 homes and businesses gaining access every single week."
...Marie-Louise Abretti, from uSwitch.com, said: "There are still areas which experience broadband speeds so slow the service is negligible. At the same time, superfast broadband connections are becoming more widely available but these are clearly not being utilised."
"The TM500 Test Mobile is the first commercial infrastructure test platform to release 3 CC" said Shusina Ngwa, product manager at Aeroflex. "Offering this capability at such an early stage is crucial to enable network performance to be tested and validated, ahead of the availability of end-user terminals and handsets."
