    The UK government has confirmed that universal high speed broadband will be delivered by a regulatory Universal Service Obligation (USO), giving everyone in the UK access to speeds of at least 10 Mbps by 2020.

    This is the speed that Ofcom, the independent regulator, says is needed to meet the requirements of an average family. After careful consideration the government has decided that regulation is the best way of making sure everyone in the UK can get a decent broadband connection of at least 10 Mbps as soon as possible.

    Hmm. Nice to know that HMG are so on the ball, when that 10mbit service won't be man enough to deliver 4K content. Isn't it about time that we got away fron the asynchronus view of things along the way too -- good upload speeds are just as important nowadays as good downloads.
