Default Village meeting

I attended a village meeting on broadband and was illuminated by the
following:

The village threshold 100+ a BT subcontractor guaranteed connection for
a smaller number 40+ but this would not provide a later capability for
further connections.
Those well beyond the village would never be broadbanded due to
attenuation in the copper wires.
Local subcontractors undertook to bring a dedicated line into the
village and radio link for 24/month.
Another offered a mast 8 miles away and a radio link .

Village thoroughly confused.

Seems in othe Euro countries connection by phone co is mandatory is this
so?

Laws of physics - not BT's fault.

No, ADSL provision is not mandatory in other Euro (I assume you mean
EU?) Countries. By the time BT finishes its installation plans the UK
will have a greater penetration of ADSL than most other EU Countires.

Ohms law is sort of physics so if the wires were 1/10th diameter
resistance would be higher and the bandwidth unsuitable for POTS though
probably OK for telegraph.
BT are entrusted by Government to provide an up to date communications
system which means greater bandwidth.
Could be fibre for longer range with a shareholder dividend down by
parts in a million. Clearly BT must be forced to insist.
