Lost Faith in BDUK

Yesterday I lost my faith in BDUK and the entire process for superfast broadband.  Hertfordshire published a map of roughly where they would be focusing on upgrading to superfast broadband and despite a demand of over 200 in my little area, they have left us out*.  What is interesting is to compare demand (from their own website – see support in my area map) against the rollout map.

Purple and pink are going to be upgraded and blue will probably be upgraded.  Orange and Red won’t be upgraded.  Most of the purple areas are big towns which area already being upgraded by BT or have cable.

* They will try to achieve 2Mbps for everyone in the area, but there are no plans for superfast broadband.
