Strangely, back in '85, IBC stood for International Broadcast Convention, held every year at Montreux (now held in Amsterdam), way before optical fibre even got talked about!
I concur completely with MikeP's comments. There is much the same talk about a cashless society, but it cannot happen until it's replacement is available to everyone, at a cost that everyone can afford. Very patchy mobile coverage and poor design of broadband network rollout has resulted in a very divided nation of users, the lucky ones having excellent services, and the forgotten many with either no services at all or unreliable, restricted or costly service. The lottery of life is showing up in some very strange places these days!
The general trend in content delivery has been obvious for some time, but practicalities and cost limitations will always mitigate the rate of implemention.

Clive Doloughan: Don't panic! We have the same problem here, just south of Peterborough. Sandy Heath signal strength is very poor tonight. Probably just atmospherics.
