The town where I live is going to be the first “Fibrecity” in the UK, apparently. I’ve been asked for permission to connect fibre-optic cabling capable of speeds in excess of 100Mbps to my house, at no cost.
I’m usually quite skeptical about no-cost offers like this, but this one does seem like it might be genuinely useful. Also, our local council has already gone ahead with the work for their offices and for the BIC and Pavilion.
I’m thinking about opting in, but there’s an exhibition about it at the local library so I might go and see that first.
