Broadband services are set to take another giant leap forwards in the UK. Perhaps to boldly go where no man has gone, or has wanted to go, before. According to the BBC, fiber firm H20 will soon establish the UK's first "fiber town", delivering super-fast download speed of 100MBps – via the sewer system.
Anthony Walker, head of the UK's Broadband Stakeholder's Group cautioned that the H20 scheme would not create a fibered Britain alone. ""There are clearly benefits to using the sewers and this fibre deployment is good news but it is only a small piece of the jigsaw," he said."
