In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Jeremy Hunt discusses the next phase of the U.K.'s ambitious superfast broadband plan and why it's necessary

Jeremy Hunt announces next phase of superfast broadband


Ambitious new plans for Britain's broadband

Earlier this month, British Culture, Media and Sport Minister Jeremy Hunt,
the former shadow Home Secretary, followed-up his earlier statements this summer on U.K. super broadband policy by announcing more specifics about what the British government plans on doing to increase not only the speed of Internet connections, but to greatly increase Internet usage in Britain, as currently, up to nine million Britons have NEVER used the Internet.
Out of a population of over 62 million.

The aim is to have
every community in the U.K., no matter how small, to have "access" to superfast broadband by the end of 2015. As you might've guessed, they're particularly keen to close the gap with many other Western nations -Ye Olde Digital Divide!
