Once again the government come up with some harebrained idea – Broadband Tax
The idea being that everyone with a fixed telephone line would pay 50p per month, the proceeds of which would ‘top-up’ the investments made to bring broadband to the masses.
Why on Earth would I PAY for someone else to get broadband, just because people some CHOOSE to live in a more rural setting?
It seems a little ridiculous in my humble opinion.
Currently I PAY FOR MY OWN broadband – maybe if the people living in those lovely rustic idylls, could do the same?
I guess spending Â£000′s on your country estate means that you couldn’t possibly afford broadband; After all it’s a MASSIVE Â£15 per month after all… :eek:
[quote]If you read the article, you’ll also note that the figures being bandied around are in dispute anyway – it’s apparently, another painfully inadequate attempt to inject some more investment in to a struggling industry.
Just like the pitifully small car scrappage allowance (you could negotiate MORE than the Â£2000 offered just by ASKING!)
Gordon (Brown), if you are reading this, make those few people not serviced by broadband at the moment PAY FOR THEIR OWN SERVICES!
