Dave Millett on UK Broadband
The Chancellor recently pledged to boost Britain's broadband network, though pledged no money to do so. Dave Millett of communications consultancy Equinox, laments the way the UK is falling behind every European country in broadband provision and speed. In fact, he says, we're doing so badly we don't even register in the league table of fibre provision to the home. We need desperately, he says, to stop relying on the technology of previous centuries such as railways and copper wiring, abandon HS2 and switch the money into creating a proper fibre broadband network.

Is the UK ready for 5G networks?
A new report by the National Infrastructure Commission claimed that the rollout of 4G networks wasn't sufficient, with the UK only ranking 54th in terms of network coverage putting us behind Peru, Colombia, and Romania, among others. The report said that the UK's future 5G mobile network must be handled better than 4G. Share Radio's Matt Cox has been finding out more from Dave Millett, Founder and MD of telecoms broker Equinox.

BT has been told it must be partially broken up - because it's not doing enough to meet competition rules.

BT has been told it must be partially broken up - because it's not doing enough to meet competition rules.
Ofcom, the telecoms regulator, has ordered BT to split from its subsidiary Openreach. Openreach is the part of the business which runs the physical cables and phone lines which most broadband and phone companies use to connect with with customers. It has been the source of a great deal of criticism of BT, with rival telecoms companies accusing it of underinvesting and prioritising BT customers at their expense. Ofcom has suggested Openreach is split off from its parent, with a separate board and control of its own branding and budget. Simon spoke to David Millett, of independent telecoms brokerage Equinox.

Morning Money: Ofcom releases Openreach report & Dave Millett of Equinox talks about the ruling
Dave Millett, Founder and Managing Director of telecoms broker, Equinox, talks about Ofcom’s report ruling on whether BT can keep its Openreach broadband arm. BT seems to have escaped the immediate threat of selling off its wholesale arm, but it faces a stricter regulatory straitjacket under wide-ranging proposals which would allow other operators to lay fibre optic lines alongside its network. Dave discusses the decision.
