Telecom: Only 60% of the average speed of the fastest provider. The fastest provider is only 65% of the basic ADSL1 spec limit and 26% of the ADSL2+ spec limit. The Government has ordered a min of 10mbit - they're currently at 31% of that.
Was that 10mbit Internet, or 10mbit access speed?
It's access speed actually, but the media are interpreting it as 10mbit Internet. That's a wrong interpretation and while it's perpetuated everyone is going to be in for a shock when Telecom does in fact deliver 10mbit access speeds to the appropriate number of people via the FTTN project but then everyone realises that 10mbit access speed does not mean 10mbit Internet access.
