IIRC BT wanted to put fibre to every house in the country some years ago, but Maggie as in Thatcher) wouldn't let them. If they had gone ahead, perhaps we wouldn't be in the mess we are today.

Indeed. That was the early 80s.

The official word was "To allow better competition from which cable companies should offer this".

Look how that turned out! The two big players NTL and Telewest have only just coem out of the Red, and have no rollout plans for the next 5 years, even in existing franchises.

BT wanted to connect every home via co-axial cable in the late 80's, the problem is that their licence restricted them from broadcasting video, hence BT's support for BSkyB ( cheap tie in deals).

It is only now, that Voice over IP is looking to be a viable commercial product and it's no longer "geeks" that require fast networking that BT have any use for a high data rate local loop. The business model has got to work before BT would make a massive investment like this.

The cost of deploying a high data rate loop is extremely high - £Billions - I would still expect a long wait if you're out in the sticks, it's the metrpolitan areas that will benefit first, the same can be said for 3G & broadband via wireless.
