More must be done if the UK is to be future-proofed rather than playing catch-up, say MPs.

I think dealing with CV19 is rather more important at the moment.

Faster Internet is a first world problem!
Great idea, all those BT Openreach engineers should be researching vaccines instead. Idiot. Removed

Whenever I feel stupid, I just remember that there are some people out there that believe 5G causes Covid-19.
Both were developed in China, so there's that. Removed

The hell are you on about. 5g was developed as a joint project between AT&T (USA), BT (UK), and Europe.

Like seriously why can't you conspiracy idiots even get the basic information right.

5G was not developed in China... it was just a Chinese company that the UK wanted to use to build our new network. 5G originated in the USA and South Korea...

Getting the fibre is easy, it’s getting it in the ground and connected up is the problem. Easier to slag off the government from a keyboard
Easy to slag off the government from a keyboard?
Easy to slag off a government that has a zero record of success.
I used to be on a cable gang before mole ploughs, blown in ultra light glass, pre ducted housing estates and mech aids.
It is the will which is missing - oh, and the cash promised before Covid but not delivered by Boris.
He is a loudmouth fraud.

Good. 5G is the final nail in the coffin of our remaining liberty. Surveillance of every moment of our lives allows despotic authorities to thrive. The old joke about every pleasure being illegal, immoral or dangerous has become illegal, illegal and illegal already.
So what have you got to hide ?
Nobody cares about your immorality or even petty criminality - really - nobody cares about you, so your over-sensotive irrational paranoia is misplaced.
In fact, I for one hope we have more CCTV coverage to "protect" everyone from idiots like you.
More please !

The fact that some people in this country really believe that 5g is dangerous is a shocking indication of our education system. Like holy hell it's up there with flat earth.

Oh and if anyone reading this is a 5g conspiracy nutjob I just want to remind you that South Korea has had 5g for years and is perfectly fine. In fact sunlight gives off more radiation than 5g does. Morons.
who is the moron really Araxmas. ???? It says something when many places including Brussels & whole Of Switzerland refuse to roll out 5g due to safety concerns. I suggest you read the book by Arthur Firstenberg - The invisible Rainbow as it is "Like holy hell" actually you who needs a descent education. Removed

My comment was removed by a BBC 'moderator' which read:

"Both were developed in China"

How is this considered 'off topic'? It's a direct reply to this thread. It is also true. Is this just a case of censoring things you don't like?
