I expect the prices to go down rather than up. It's the only way they will grow as a business and stay in business.

I think it depends how much you value the service you receive.

UK broadband prices are ridiculously cheap, mostly at the expense of having poor off shore support etc.

I'm more than happy to pay double the 'average' price for my Internet connection if I get a good connection, good support ad contribute to the local economy.

Unfortunately, most people want the cheapest price for everything, usually without considering the consequences that if you pay bottom dollar for a service, you're likely to receive bottom dollar service.

Yea and average people is how they will grow their business I think. Once BT roll out every where in South Yorkshire, average people are going to choose the cheapest, although at the moment most people don't know digital region exist.

Looks like the Government has paid up and got out, leaving the councils to it:

£45m to clean up Digital Region "mess"

Rotherham Business News
16/7/13

The Minister of State for Business and Enterprise, Michael Fallon, was less than complementary of the Digital Region project in South Yorkshire, when he was forced to ask the Government for £45m "to clear up the mess."

So what if local councils decide they don't want to put any money in..

3000 customers, oh deary me. I thought there might be a few more than that! That's what you get when you don't know how to promote or run a service.

That figure just cannot be correct; I'd have been surprised to learn that one ISP only had that many subscribers!
