Just a week after it co-signed a letter to minister for communications and head of Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), Ed Vaizey, complaining about the prices BT charges for use of its ducts and poles, Fujijsu has revealed plans to build a high-speed broadband network aimed at supplying internet to 5 million rural homes.

What can I say? WOW! Too bad it's going to rural instead of urban cities.

"...and said TalkTalk and Virgin have already signed up to use the wholesale network to provide service to their own customers..."

I hope more ISPs sign up though. Talktalk were beyond terrible for my dad and my friends on Virgin have been telling me that their service has been on a downward spiral recently.

Yea because urban cities have such poor connections

Where I live there is only one option, ADSL, luckily I don't live to far away from the exchange so I get reasonable download rates, my upload however is 0.37Mbps, and I don't live in the city. So yea I'm quite happy about this.

It's going to rural areas because they tend to be commercially not worth investing in.
