House of Lords report says UK broadband not fit for purpose

On this edition of Tech Weekly with Aleks Krotoski, we hear from Guardian telecommunications correspondent Juliette Garside on the House of Lords report into the UK’s broadband infrastructure. Juliette discusses why the present network is creating a monopoly in the industry and potentially blocking private investment in broadband.

Guardian Technology editor Charles Arthur looks at the growth in bandwidth and data management services when he meets one of the team behind the Snappli app, Eldar Tuvi.

And Guardian games correspondent Keith Stuart reports from the Casual Connect Conference in Seattle, where he meets Sulake chief executive Paul LaFontaine to discuss recent problems with the company’s Habbo Hotel social network and why guarding users from inappropriate communications and content is an industry wide problem.
