The Computer Society of Bermuda must have gone mad with their recent report recommending installation of fibre to the home at at an approximate cost of $9,000 per home.
"Local on-island facilities need to be upgraded to fibre-to-the-home to exceed the 24 Mbps technical maximum we have now," the report stated.
"This may require investment above $9,000 per home and have to cover over 75 percent of homes to be worthwhile."
There are many fans of rolling out higher speed lower cost internet in Bermuda but $9,000 a home? At 30,000 dewellings that amounts to nearly $200 million invested to reach their coverage levels. Sorry, but we can do better.
