Digital Voices this week has been a little quieter than the raging comment inferno of last week. No doubt everyone’s been making good on the brief spell of good (well, better) weather we’ve had…

Welsh broadband activists declare war on trees

“a publicity stunt and a successful one – rural parts of the whole UK are woefully unsupported with regard to broadband – they’re just highlighting the problem in Wales.”

The mystery get-3-meg has a point – doesn’t mean that Wispa’s observations don’t ring true though. Just don’t have a pang of jealousy when you read that residents of Whitchurch and Shingle Street are getting double digit download speeds before you are…
