Says South Yorkshire are getting 100 million to create the fastest connections in Europe. I really hope we are part of that it would be awesome!

Are you absolutely certain its not the inverse of this: http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,75907.0.html
Perhaps there is only £100 available for S Yorks.

No it said 100 million.
Pah they offering 25mb? That'll be good if it's all fibre or 21CN but how can they say that 25mb would be the fastest in europe? it's going to get a lot of people ringing up about the speed.
They say the fastest connection in europe but it's not.. What will the upload be will it be symmetrical? If so that it'll be a good start.
It'll ake the cable company's up their speed that's for sure. Upload wise I mean. For the download it's 1/2 what I get now..

Re: £100 million for South Yorkshire (Look North tonight)

25mb would be very welcome here thats for sure.
all i want is for the gov to stop all this messin about and just pay for the god dam fibre to be laid to the area's that are so far they cant get speeds faster enough to stream HD or gain any speed from adsl2+. the guys on short lines should be the last to get fibre
i am just god dam fed up of people on short lines getting massavie increases in speed on adsl2+ and most likely also have the option to have VM's cable service as well. spoilt for choice where us guys on long lines have to just lump it.
i bet if politican's expenses where stoped that would cover the bill to fibre this country up easy plus take alot of people off the dole at this time of high unempolyment.
are tax monney is just being spent on stuff that dosent benfit us
arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Crazy
