FEWER than half of households in Southampton have access to top broadband speeds, official figures show.

As council bosses prepare to plough millions of pounds into upgrading the network, industry watchdog Ofcom has revealed the city is lagging well behind the rest of the county.

In Hampshire, coverage of 'superfast' broadband, which is higher than 24 megabits-per-second (Mbps), is 68 per cent - and this reaches 95 per cent in Portsmouth. But in Southampton it slips to just 46 per cent. Some parts of the UK, including remote Scottish islands, currently have no superfast coverage at all.

Council bosses are currently working on plans to give 90 per cent of homes and businesses access to a superfast service.

Funding bids from Southampton City Council and Hampshire County Council were accepted by the government in January this year, with £8.4m pot set aside for Southampton, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. The money from Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) has to be matched by council and private finance.

But the plans have been criticised by a Parliamentary committee, which said the plans would leave some areas in the slow lane.

The Lords Communications Committee said the government was focusing on speed rather than complete coverage.

Their report said: "There is a very real risk that some people and businesses are being left behind."

The report argued for a network of fibre-optic hubs, which would get fast broadband to every community, criticising an obsession with speed over reach.

It added: "What is important is the long term assurance that, as new internet applications emerge, everyone will be able to benefit, from inhabitants of inner cities to the remotest areas of the UK."

But Ed Vaizey, the digital minister, rejected the criticism, saying: "There is a lot of public money going in to fill this gap."

The challenge for online gaming is latency, rather than bandwidth which is what "super fast broadband" gives you primarily.

Bandwidth to the home will be handy for IP TV though.

I think we are all still awaiting the details of your Sikh friend’s post that confirms that Rahit Maryada was/is a person (as well as a code of conduct).

Remember, at 6:58am Fri 3 Aug 12 you said: –

“my Sikh friend posted on here telling you personally him self.”

Now, you have been challenged by both georgem and myself to point us to this post. Just to remind you, you were seeing your Sikh friend last weekend so it’s not going to be before 28 July.

I’ve searched every story since then for this illusive post without finding any what-so-ever that could be from your Sikh friend – or indeed ANY post (or internet website) that backs up your story.

I’m no longer asking you to provide the URL as I would not wish you to break the Echo’s terms and conditions (which I thought was a rather pathetic excuse as you have previously posted URL’s). No, just tell us the date and headline and we can all search and find it, can’t we?

Extensive searches by myself and georgem have failed to find this post but I’m sure with the search facilities available to you (“i tend not to google search i uses an older one that gives the full search hits” – southy 10:53am Thu 19 Jul 12) it will pop up in no time and you can put us all out of our misery.

In fact, here’s an offer southy. Point out this post and I promise to never mention Rahit Maryada ever again on this website. On the other hand, failure to do so …

Tavistock Superfast Broadband says...

Ofcom talk more about the areas that have nothing then just accept it. Just what does Ofcom actually do? They appear to sit on the sidelines and pass comment from perspective.

Ed Vaizey seems to have lost the plot and shows no passion at all to get superfast broadband completed in England. Unlike Northern Ireland and Wales. In Scotland the proportion of population getting superfast is far greater than England.

I will mention Tavistock as an example on one of the many Towns that is not in any funding nor on any roll-out plan. This is a warning to check what your Local Authority plans to deliver under the BDUK Framework.

Fundamental misunderstanding of the technology. The speed problem is absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with which ISP is providing it, and absolutely everything to do with BT.

No need. Rahit Maryada is not a person. That is a fact. Southy is going to utterly ridiculous lengths to cover up an honest error that anybody could have made.

Interesting point about free markets. Telecoms has been a monopoly up until very recently. BT still own the copper, it's only now that anyone - Virgin - have any hope of putting real competitive pressure on that. IMHO it's a bit early to state that this isn't happening.

Regarding this broadband subject, considering supporters of private enterprise (like plenty of trolls on this site) keep on telling us that free market encourages competition that improves the service, why Councils which are short of funds for other services should be contributing to improve this business? Why these big businesses are not told to provide set standards of service?
.. that's fine Paramjit, but as georgem says there is no need as Rahit Maryada IS a code of conduct and NOT a person. We all know that.

My point is that southy has now made up a story that a Sikh friend has not only confirmed southy's story BUT HAS POSTED ON THIS WEBSITE to that effect.

That would appear to be a lie - unless southy can demonstrate otherwise. This is what I’m now on about, i.e. southy’s apparently deliberate dishonesty. However, I’m fully prepared to eat my word and offer humble apologies if southy can direct us to his Sikh friend’s post.

Fundamental misunderstanding of the technology. The speed problem is absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with which ISP is providing it, and absolutely everything to do with BT.
Yes I know, Virgin media uses fiber optic, but from the junction box to your home its copper cable, i think this busy of being slow is only BT

.. good morning southy.

I think we are all still awaiting the details of your Sikh friend’s post that confirms that Rahit Maryada was/is a person (as well as a code of conduct).

Remember, at 6:58am Fri 3 Aug 12 you said: –

“my Sikh friend posted on here telling you personally him self.”

Now, you have been challenged by both georgem and myself to point us to this post. Just to remind you, you were seeing your Sikh friend last weekend so it’s not going to be before 28 July.

I’ve searched every story since then for this illusive post without finding any what-so-ever that could be from your Sikh friend – or indeed ANY post (or internet website) that backs up your story.

I’m no longer asking you to provide the URL as I would not wish you to break the Echo’s terms and conditions (which I thought was a rather pathetic excuse as you have previously posted URL’s). No, just tell us the date and headline and we can all search and find it, can’t we?

Extensive searches by myself and georgem have failed to find this post but I’m sure with the search facilities available to you (“i tend not to google search i uses an older one that gives the full search hits” – southy 10:53am Thu 19 Jul 12) it will pop up in no time and you can put us all out of our misery.

In fact, here’s an offer southy. Point out this post and I promise to never mention Rahit Maryada ever again on this website. On the other hand, failure to do so …
Freefinker, I have a close friend of mine who even in scientific age still believes in God and is actively involved in Gurdwaras (Super markets where they sell opium called God of Sikh variety, like they sell same stuff under brand name Christianity in church!)

You mean, like I said in the post to which you replied? Yes, correct.

So what does a now-defunct ISP have to do with anything?

No it wasn't. There is no evidence whatsoever that this is the case, and plenty of evidence to the contrary. Stop lying. You were wrong, about something minor and trivial that nobody would care about, and have told a multitude of ridiculous lies to cover it up. You've carried out the online equivalent of burning an entire street down to cover up the fact that you spilt orange juice on the floor.

And you keep making it worse. I know you can't afford to admit you were wrong now, but at least stop digging yourself in further.

No need. Rahit Maryada is not a person. That is a fact. Southy is going to utterly ridiculous lengths to cover up an honest error that anybody could have made.

Interesting point about free markets. Telecoms has been a monopoly up until very recently. BT still own the copper, it's only now that anyone - Virgin - have any hope of putting real competitive pressure on that. IMHO it's a bit early to state that this isn't happening.

No it isn't. It was proven to you. You're just pretending otherwise, and everyone knows it.

You thinking of Videotron? Or were they Cable and Wireless, THEN NTL? Up North, you're probably thinking of Hull, which has had it's own phone system for decades.

BT still has ultimate control over most of our broadband, by the way. Comparing how many people have FTTC vs BT copper, BT copper is winning by miles.

Might been Hull, yes it was Videotron (they bought up Rediffion cable service), when they was allowed to run a phone service they became NTL. in the west country there is another company that became part of NTL.
But X-Stream internet was free on what ever phone service you used.

In fact, here’s an offer southy. Point out this post and I promise to never mention Rahit Maryada ever again on this website. On the other hand, failure to do so …
Freefinker, I have a close friend of mine who even in scientific age still believes in God and is actively involved in Gurdwaras (Super markets where they sell opium called God of Sikh variety, like they sell same stuff under brand name Christianity in church!) I will try to phone him and find out for you what this ‘Rahit Maryada’ thingy is all about. I am convinced it is something to do with practising that religion. Regarding any person called this, I have never heard of, but then people have all kinds of names, so if Southy really knows anybody I won’t be surprised….

Regarding this broadband subject, considering supporters of private enterprise (like plenty of trolls on this site) keep on telling us that free market encourages competition that improves the service, why Councils which are short of funds for other services should be contributing to improve this business? Why these big businesses are not told to provide set standards of service?
Don't nother Parami he been told to many time what it is and it was named after a person.
No it wasn't. There is no evidence whatsoever that this is the case, and plenty of evidence to the contrary. Stop lying. You were wrong, about something minor and trivial that nobody would care about, and have told a multitude of ridiculous lies to cover it up. You've carried out the online equivalent of burning an entire street down to cover up the fact that you spilt orange juice on the floor.

And you keep making it worse. I know you can't afford to admit you were wrong now, but at least stop digging yourself in further.
Southy, the easy option to fnish this topic, and to get people off your back, would be to provide the info as requested,continued failure to do so only makes it worse for yourself.
Time to put up or eat humble pie.
It would hulla baloo but it showing for what they really are, stuck with information and unable to accept that many things was name after people, they can't even be bothered to go down Onslow Rd or the one in Shirley to the Sikh Temple and ask the Teachers there,
They need to get off there back sides and go and chat to people and find out, and stop expecting every one else to do it for them.
So why dont you finis it off once and for all, and and give the info.
Your constant refusals only show that you cant, and that you have been caught out, yet again.

MARYADA is a Sanskrit word whose Punjabi equivalent is marjada, the j and y having a similar sound in the Punjabi language. Maryada means compliance of conventions and refers to a social code of in the sense of customary rules and regulations required for maintaining respectability of rank pertaining to protocol, propriety and position.
Definition:
RAHIT means having a manner of moral conduct, observing particular principles, and employing ethics habitually as a way of life.
In Sikhism, rehit is used in conjunction with the word maryada, or conventions, and refers to a specific code of conduct known as Sikh Reht Maryada (SRM), a document stipulating behavior which every Sikh is meant to follow.

Wow, southy. This teacher guy of yours sure had a funny name. Absolutely no hint anywhere that these two words are names. To think they also represent the names of a person who originated this code of conduct is quite bizarre, don’t you think? Would be the equivalent of someone being called Ten Commandments.

You infuriate me because you think you know it all but are in fact quite ignorant on most issues. Well, that's no crime and you are not alone on this website in this respect.

However, you ALWAYS refuse to ever admit you are ever wrong.

Numerous times on many different and various issues I have proved the information you have supplied has been inaccurate or just plain wrong.

I have always backed up my data with reliable and verifiable sources galore.

Yet your stubborn attitude and personality defects do not allow you to concede you have ever got anything wrong.

Believing Rahit Maryada to be a person in the heat of the moment is forgivable. However you have subsequently concocted a rather stupid lie to try and add weight to your totally discredited position by saying: -

“my Sikh friend posted on here telling you personally him self.”

That IS A LIE southy, a deliberate, calculated and very deceitful lie; and you and everybody on this website knows it. You should be well and truly ashamed of yourself for such childish behaviour. To believe you could actually get away with such a lie actually speaks volumes for your immaturity and stupidity. You are a pathetic individual.

In Bengali, Hindi, Urdu: means:-
Peaceful, calm, quiet and satisfaction. (The same as Arabic- but the meaning 'group' is less likely to be considered).

TO FREEFINKER GEORGEM and SOUTHY:

As promised I have checked with three, what I believe to be well informed and reliable sources, about this petty bickering over ‘Rahit Maryada’.

Two of them have confirmed that Wikipedia explanation is very close to the mark. But in fact it goes back lot further to tenth Guru of Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh, and starting Sikh religion some time around the end of 1600s. These were basically the rules which he wanted his followers to practice. Rules have been defined by his various prominent followers over a period of time.

During early part of last century some shady characters had managed to control many prominent Sikh Shrines in Punjab province of India. Many liberal minded Sikhs (Known as Akali, which have now become a political party Akali Dal) led massive campaign to liberate their shrines from unsavoury characters. British India government tried to brutally suppress that non violent campaign but eventually agreed to liberation of disputed places of worship, and give control of those to democratically elected body of Sikhs created by a new law.

10th Guru’s Rahit Maryada was recognised under that Act. Under which now democratised Major Sikh shrines/ Gurdwaras are run. SGPC (Shromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee) based in Amritsar near Golden Temple is accepted by virtually all Sikh Gurdwaras throughout the world. If any of you guys want to find out about Sikhism rather than wasting time on local Gudwaras best thing to do is to get in touch with SGPC office, Amritsar; Panjab; India

I have the feeling that somebody may have given Southy completely wrong information or he may have completely misunderstood something. End of the day we are all human and prone to mistakes. “Rahit Maryada” is MOST CERTAINLY NOT named after any individual.

Now let us all make peace and start sticking to subject in hand PLEASE. Or better still watch Olympics

As promised I have checked with three, what I believe to be well informed and reliable sources, about this petty bickering over ‘Rahit Maryada’.

Two of them have confirmed that Wikipedia explanation is very close to the mark. But in fact it goes back lot further to tenth Guru of Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh, and starting Sikh religion some time around the end of 1600s. These were basically the rules which he wanted his followers to practice. Rules have been defined by his various prominent followers over a period of time.

During early part of last century some shady characters had managed to control many prominent Sikh Shrines in Punjab province of India. Many liberal minded Sikhs (Known as Akali, which have now become a political party Akali Dal) led massive campaign to liberate their shrines from unsavoury characters. British India government tried to brutally suppress that non violent campaign but eventually agreed to liberation of disputed places of worship, and give control of those to democratically elected body of Sikhs created by a new law.

10th Guru’s Rahit Maryada was recognised under that Act. Under which now democratised Major Sikh shrines/ Gurdwaras are run. SGPC (Shromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee) based in Amritsar near Golden Temple is accepted by virtually all Sikh Gurdwaras throughout the world. If any of you guys want to find out about Sikhism rather than wasting time on local Gudwaras best thing to do is to get in touch with SGPC office, Amritsar; Panjab; India

I have the feeling that somebody may have given Southy completely wrong information or he may have completely misunderstood something. End of the day we are all human and prone to mistakes. “Rahit Maryada” is MOST CERTAINLY NOT named after any individual.

Now let us all make peace and start sticking to subject in hand PLEASE. Or better still watch Olympics
Thanks for looking further into this. Nobody gave southy any misinformation, he simply made an honest mistake and tried to say otherwise, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. This is important, even if it seems like it isn't, because when he does things like this, the discussion stops being balanced. He refuses to accept anything anyone else claims to be fact, especially when they present evidence - as you have done - to back up their claims. Presentation and acceptance of documentary evidence is vital to a debate, otherwise all you have is people taking it in turns to say "No, YOU'RE wrong". Which achieves nothing.

.. agreed, 100%.

As we have pointed out, honest mistakes are something we all do on occasions - no crime there.

This time, however, southy has gone much further than normal. He has maliciously concocted a deliberate lie with: -

“my Sikh friend posted on here telling you personally him self.”

"This time, however, southy has gone much further than normal. He has maliciously concocted a deliberate lie with: -

“my Sikh friend posted on here telling you personally him self.”"

Which begs the question: Why?

The answer may point towards personal insecurity?

Whatever the reason for the regular "whoppers", such behaviour was set a long time ago, is unlikely to change and so other posters will continue experiencing frustration and at times justifiable annoyance.

Some time back I chose to ignore the nonsense or respond to it, preferring to have my mind stimulated by the smart, honest, thought-provoking, balanced contributions of people like yourself.

Works for me.

Enjoy the rest of the Olympics :-)

Most of the time, I'm able to keep a tight lid on my own "unreasonablness". Like everyone else, I'm imperfect and so I'm not always successful. But I never resort to "whoppers" to underpin a failing argument or to mask a lack of self confidence.

As you have often pointed out on this forum: honest, forthright, robust debate between people holding different, and at times, diametrically opposed viewpoints, is what it is all about. Otherwise, nothing is new, nothing is learned and those that shout the loudest simply drown out others by their need to hear their own voice and have their own fixed views reinforced. What is the point of that?

Posters who purposefully engage in "whoppers" lack personal integrity and thus shoot themselves in their feet and their credibility goes out of the window. I tend to think they are to be pitied rather than despised, because they lose out.

Your contributions are bold, pithy, sometimes brutally honest and intelligently-crafte
d. They make stimulating reading and always remain "reasonable" in a sea of seemingly chaotic drivel. Thanks.

Thanks! Refreshing to hear from someone who doesn't think "opposing the prevalent opinion" equates to "trolling". Maybe one day I'll reach your Zen state and be able to leave the southys of this world to one side.

.. good morning southy. I think we are all still awaiting the details of your Sikh friend’s post that confirms that Rahit Maryada was/is a person (as well as a code of conduct). Remember, at 6:58am Fri 3 Aug 12 you said: – “my Sikh friend posted on here telling you personally him self.” Now, you have been challenged by both georgem and myself to point us to this post. Just to remind you, you were seeing your Sikh friend last weekend so it’s not going to be before 28 July. I’ve searched every story since then for this illusive post without finding any what-so-ever that could be from your Sikh friend – or indeed ANY post (or internet website) that backs up your story. I’m no longer asking you to provide the URL as I would not wish you to break the Echo’s terms and conditions (which I thought was a rather pathetic excuse as you have previously posted URL’s). No, just tell us the date and headline and we can all search and find it, can’t we? Extensive searches by myself and georgem have failed to find this post but I’m sure with the search facilities available to you (“i tend not to google search i uses an older one that gives the full search hits” – southy 10:53am Thu 19 Jul 12) it will pop up in no time and you can put us all out of our misery. In fact, here’s an offer southy. Point out this post and I promise to never mention Rahit Maryada ever again on this website. On the other hand, failure to do so …
ah shaddup!
no please don't, I have noticed every time you mention Rahit Maryada he really does disappear, this can only be a good thing. His constant hijacking and inappropriate comments on these boards
are boring and sometimes offensive.
