I spent the weekend trying to get my cheap pay-as-you-go broadband to get above morse code speed. Soon I won't have to bother. Once there is broadband in every home with wireless networking to every child's bedroom I will be bathed in a rich soup of bandwidth and able to connect to any access point from across the street. I can guarantee that the majority of access points will still have the default password.
I can also guarantee that people who use obscure passwords will find 20 armed policemen knocking on their door with a battering ram with full media coverage.
I'm still waiting to see how broadband in every home is going to power the economic recovery, solve childhood obesity and decrease our reliance on imported food - to name just a few real priorities
