Carter report on Guardian tech weekly

Discussion on Carter report Digital Britain on Guardian Tech Weekly podcast.

Government intervention. How to pay for universal broadband? “Think like the Victorians” (Vic Keegan). 2MB is an aspiration, compared with 20 and 50MB in other countries. ‘Universal service obligation’ does not include a commitment to achieve even this speed for all.

New media startups get little encouragement from the report. Does the report’s focus on old media: press,TV and DAB radio, reflect successful lobbying by incumbent industry interests?
