Full-fibre has low maintenance costs once rolled out, which can be estimated at around £230 million a year.
This appears to be a mis-calculation which labour have corrected, so they deserve some credit for that.
However, they were way off, the actual figure is £580 million per year.
It’s because of the present value of money in the future is worth less today. £1,100 in a years time might be worth £1,000 today.
Do you agree this deserves 2 / 5 for truthfullness?
