    Bournemouth has been picked as the first UK town to get super-fast fibre via the sewers.

    It is part of a plan from fibre firm H20 to extend its underground sewer networks from businesses to consumers.

    Work will begin on the network within the next six months and more towns will be announced in coming months.

    It will bring broadband of up to 100Mbps (megabits per second) to 88,000 homes in the Dorset town and is the largest scheme of its kind in the UK.

    I read earlier that it is expected to be completed within 6 months. I wonder how long it'll take before it'll be spread across the entire country. At 100mbps, it might actually deliver the promised "8mbps" I am currently told I am receiving. (No, not 'up to 8mbps', they actually quoted their technicians checked my line and I am receiving just below 8mbps, somewhere in the 7900'skbps.)
