of small firms lack access to superfast broadband.
Around half (44%) of small and medium-sized
firms in the UK do not have access to superfast
broadband, compared to 25% of the general population,
according to figures released by Ofcom. In urban
areas, around a third (33%) of small and medium-sized
firms lacked access, compared to 17% of the
urban population as a whole. The findings were
published in Ofcom's 2014 Infrastructure Report,
which also reveals that broadband users as a
whole were downloading 77% more data in 2014
than in 2013. Ofcom has developed an interactive
mapping tool to help consumers and business
owners to check digital coverage in their local
area. Further research on the availability,

The biggest obstacle is Big Corp. Usually, American
Big Corp. And gutlesss politicians. And the
media. Like those who are now pretending that
they didn't know what the CIA was for or what
it was doing. Although the pretence continues
to include the lucrative spectre of terrorist
threat again, so job done, job done. They'll
be able to go off now and whip up the next pretext
for another murderous bombing spree killing
tens of thousands more defenceless civilians.
Before pretending they didn't do that, either.
And so it goes on. Backed by the American, British
and European public who also pretend they didn't
- and don't - know anything. Despite the planet
being littered with more dead bodies in the
past fifty years than the Second World War ever
produced. And despite this being the age of
mass communication. Information technology.

will include setting up an advisory council
to represent the interests of the creative industries

which include bringing together public and private

to help with calculating Capital Gains Tax.
New Enterprise Allowance (NEA) scheme will be
extended from January 2015, to support new business

payment still commonplace in construction sector.
Research carried out by the Federation of Master
Builders (FMB) and the National Specialist Contractors
Council (NSCC) has identified Tier 2 sub-contractors
as net providers of trade credit within the
construction industry, with many providing more
credit to Tier 1 contractors and clients than
they receive from their own suppliers. Despite
the majority (92%) of FMB and NSCC members surveyed
agreeing terms that require their clients to
pay within 45 days, only 57% actually receive
payment during this period. In contrast, 84%
of members who agree to pay their suppliers
within 45 days actually do so. Commenting on
the findings, FMB Chief Executive Brian Berry
said: "This clearly shows that, although
contractual payment terms are improving, late
payment is still rife within the supply chain
and much more needs to be done to ensure payments
are made within terms." (EnterpriseQuest)
Late payment is far more universal than just
the construction sector.

parrot-fashion, simply repeating lying Government
propaganda; just as it did eventually, on TTIP

it over to US Big Corp); the contaminated supermarket
food chain; tax-dodging US Big Corp; the annual
£85 billion taxpayer's subsidy to US Big
Corp . . . and so on.
