Broadband 2.0 - UK regulator says fiber needed in the last mile

Canadians interested in Internet infrastructure issues, such as Network Neutrality, should make sure they are subscribers to Bill St.Arnaud's "CAnet - news" service. The most recent letter discusses a UK study of whether wireless will be able to offer the higher bandwidth requirements of "Broadband 2.0" (IE: network infrastructure capable of handling HDTV and other such higher bandwidth services).

Not surprisingly, Fiber to the Home (FTTH) is seen as the future for these types of services, with wireless providing secondary services (mobile Web/voice access, etc).
