How important is broadband to you?
A village in England is set to deliver super-fast broadband to local homes that had been denied the service by major commercial firms. How far would you go to ensure a broadband connection?
In the UK there are concerns that up to one third of the country will not be served by next-generation broadband as rural areas are not cost-effective for large internet service providers.
In other parts of the world, such as South Korea, high speed broadband connections are the norm. Now the South Korean government is introducing policies to curb the time children spend online as concerns grow at the time people spend in virtual worlds.
Are you happy with the quality of your internet connection? Is DIY broadband a good idea? Do you worry that excessive time online takes people from the real world into a virtual one?
