Truespeed seems to be a heavily funded start up. How come it is delivering fibre to rural communities when BT, Virgin etc aren’t?
How come startup FTTP providers like Truespeed can deliver fibre to rural communities, when the major operators like BT & Virgin with their deep pockets can't?
Very simple: all that BT/OR is interested in is sweating existing asset - charging as much as possible for as little investment as possible. Hence their whole BS approach to FTTC and the smoke & mirrors of G.Fast etc. There is no sense of either entrepreneurship or service at BT/OR, so there are many areas where (backhaul permitting) an innovative or community player can provide
Rural areas have to help themselves. If there are people of grit it can be done.There are many altnets springing up and delivering perfect service. The big telcos are only interested in urban areas where profit is good. The problem with these urban areas is that they are relying on obsolete infrastructure in many cases, so rural areas are starting to lead the way… building brand new fibre networks that are truly futureproof.
