Gordon Brown compared superfast broadband to electricity
Superfast broadband has been declared the electricity of our time by none other than the prime minister himself.
In a landmark speech, Gordon Brown highlighted the importance of a good web connection and paved the way for a rush towards the higher speeds offered by products like Managed Comms’ SDSL.
Although a typical Managed Comms symmetric digital subscriber line offers 2Mbps upstream and downstream in isolation, it’s possible to bond several together to get phenomenal performance.
Many companies choose to bond four SDSL lines – equivalent to 8Mbps – while some choose to go for the ultimate 16 line package to obtain an astonishing 32Mbps.
And Mr Brown argued that improved upload and download rates like these will revolutionise the public and private sectors.
“Faster broadband speeds will bring new, cheaper, more personalised and more effective public services to people,” he said.
“It will bring games and entertainment options with new levels of sophistication; it will make accessing goods and services immeasurably easier.”
Moreover, he added that it was important for everyone to be able to access the proposed high-speed network because “superfast broadband is the electricity of the digital age”.
Any business that makes the switch to a Managed Comms SDSL will be amazed by the new opportunities opened up by superfast broadband.
HD video conferencing, cloud computing and the ability to use even the most demanding online programs are just some of the potential benefits of SDSL.
And with Managed Comms, it won’t be long before you realise that superfast broadband really is every bit as important as electricity.
