Abstract

The government has announced that ‘super-fast broadband’ will be available across the UK by 2015. But is this just the latest in a long line of similar announcements, or will it succeed where others have failed? Jerry Fishenden argues that in order for the government to deliver on these latest promises, it must close the gap between aspiration and delivery by focusing on better regulation, and ensuring that investments, incentives, and competition are balanced in a way that finally improves the UK’s digital infrastructure.
