The UK Gov declined more ambitious full fibre option, or even universal coverage, when looking at the roll out of superfast broadband. They set a target of 95% - not 100%, 95%! Where did these rural Tory MPs think the 5% would be?! #clueless #selfinflicted #SNPsortingToryFail
Their answer for the final 5%? A Universal Service Obligation. The UK-wide USO provides a legal right to request a broadband connection of 10M
download & 1M upload, up to a reasonable cost threshold (£3400).
Ofcom is working on the delivery, expected to be available next year..
Worth noting SNP proposed a 30M USO, arguing 10M was insufficient, cementing in the digital divide, not closing it. 30M would've given parity for all citizens, but also critically necessitated a different approach (more fibre) meaning less chance of the gap opening up in future.

I’ve asked several #antivaxxers for 1 peer-reviewed research study that supports their claim that vaccines cause autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Most never respond but some @ me a list of "studies" they claim make this link. For fun I started to read……
For convenience I have numbered the tweets to correspond to the number listed in the link. Feel free to keep score as we go through these papers!
