| || || | Broadband in Japan
Corbyn "Only 8-10% of premises in the UK are connected to full-fibre
broadband. It's 97% in Japan."
Is it true that 97% of all areas of Japan have high speed fibre broadband?
Their urban areas seem very congested with many services on poles and of
course they have rural areas.
Just always very sceptical of figures like that which can be thrown
around by politicians.

Can anybody recommend a PC support organisation in the Holbeach area

several very slow ADSL connections to their various very rural farm offices.
None of the users know anything about computers so they need very

I have finally swapped over from my original SH to a SH£, to go from 160
Mb/sec to 200 Mb/sec.
VM don't want the original SH back.
I can see that I could use it as a WiFi router (as I do with a TP-Link
cable router), by turning off DHCP and just plugging it into an Ethernet
However it would be nice to make more use of it if possible.

"Almost one-fifth of Britons 'do not use internet'
Almost 20% of British people are not using the internet, a survey suggests.
The detailed in-home survey of almost 2,000 Britons found that 18%
described themselves as non-users.
The Oxford Internet Institute (OII), which carried out the research,
said people falling into the category tended to be older and poorer than
frequent net users.

I see numerous occasions in rural areas where a good mobile signal is
only obtainable outside a building, and sometimes even then only high up

In these same locations FTTC is never available, and ADSL is treacly slow.
There are routers which implement a WAN connection using a plug-in
3G/4G/5G modem - but the only models I've seen use USB. This limits the
