Can you live a modern student, business and family life on our rural broadband?

Local resident Oliver Green was on BBC Radio Oxford this morning describing the challenges of living in a modern family on our dreadful rural broadband.  He is a student who has to do much coursework online and is interested in computer game development.  Oliver’s family also try to run a business down the same broadband connection and of course want to take part in normal leisure activities like watch video online through iPlayer and Netflix.  But it’s essentially impossible on Oxfordshire’s rural broadband.   Oliver called for government to do more for broadband in rural communities.  Ed Vaizey a local MP and government minister for broadband will respond later in the show.
