WTF is that about. It has to be the biggest cop-out ever and a reason to scrap the 50p tax if ever I heard one.
I am sure more than 90% can get some sort of broadband now.
Simply putting in more lines to anyone that wants 2M will get them 2M.
Yes, it would cost a bit more, but most things would and cost was not part of their target.
In fact, I will try and get some stats. If we can do 500K to 90% pop now, I will announce that AAISP has reached the governments target for 2017 already.
