Labour don't know difference between megabits and megabytes
Labour (and MPs in general) seem hell-bent on proving exactly how little they know about the digital economy. Aside from pushing through a bill at the eleventh hour that many MPs couldn't have cared less about, apart from the minister responsible for the bill not knowing what an IP address was - we now have this.
This ladies and gentlemen, is taken direct from page 1:6 of the Labour Manifesto - a document that has been scrutinised and pored over for months, checked and rechecked countless times:
That right. Labour are promising broadband speeds of two megabytes per second in the next two years, which is odd, because broadband speeds are usually measured in megabits per second. Two megabytes is actually 16 megabits, which isn't what Labour are promising at all. Whoops.
