Ofcom's broadband map

Ofcom have produced a map of Broadband availability. The link is the link to it. The real problem, however, is that it does not indicate what someone should expect in some of the really large counties such as Powys.

Broadband will vary across such counties so it is more of a management tool than a tool which really explains what someone should expect if they move to somewhere in such a county.

It is, however, something I find vaguely interesting so I thought I would repost it.

I'm still a bit confused though....I've been searching for years and still unable to find anybody who actually knows what the difference between a Megabit and a Megabyte is.....still suspect it's the elgal mumbo jumbo thing, i.e. Megabit can legally mean whatever they feel like, depending on what day it is as it's a made up word for marketing purposes....

Standards Board and Ken Livingstone

The link is to the case where Ken Livingstone appealed the decision of the Adjudication Panel for England. The Standards Board and associated Adjudication Panel have done a lot of damage to democracy in the UK. The courts are, however, bringing them into more sanity. The point about Ken Livingstone's case is that it was high profile and he also could afford to appeal. The Standard Board has a problem in that those subject to its enquiries face substantial costs that they cannot claim back. This is an issue that needs further work. In essence the Judge found that what he said brought him into disrepute, but not the office of Mayor. We do need the machinery of the SBE and APE to concentrate on things that matter rather than people being rude to each other.
