Fluidata claims government needs to innovate
The UK government should attempt to move towards a more innovative model for broadband provision in the country, Fluidata has warned.
Managing director Piers Daniell argued that if policymakers genuinely wish to provide everyone in Britain with "decent broadband" they need to change their current system.
"There are creative and effective ways to provide broadband choice across the country," he added.
This follows the news that Fluidata, working in tandem with Digital Region, has launched a new fibre optic network that will allow consumers in South Yorkshire to access superfast broadband from over 50 different ISPs.
By helping provide infrastructure that is not connected to any particular ISP, Mr Daniell claims the company can increase the number of choices available to households as well as providing more penetration of rural areas.
"Even providing broadband in rural areas doesn't have to be one-horse race," concluded the managing director.
Connectivity provider Fluidata recently weighed in on the ongoing debate over filesharing sites, arguing that it will be difficult to prevent canny users from circumventing frameworks set up to cut down on illegal downloads.
