Exactly this, to use an analogy it’s much like broadband. Twenty years ago it was fine for dialup. But as speed has increased the local infrastructure (I live in the North) has failed to cope with the increase in demand. The government tells me that they’ve invested blah blah blah million pounds in bringing fibre to the village. I pay Sky a princely sum each month for the privilege, and then it does the last few meters from the exchange to my house on some antiquated 1920’s copper wiring* which negates any of the above speed increases. Labour promised I could have it cheaper when it was nationalised despite all the people who knew about such things in great detail saying this was unlikely. *It might not be 1920’s, this being Railforums I am in NO DOUBT WHATSOEVER that there WILL be a telephone cable spotter on here.
