The UK certainly has fast broadband access in some places, but ubiquitous access? Not so much. However, that might change if the British government has its way. It's developing a Universal Service Obligation that, by 2020, would give all residents the right to request at least a 10Mbps internet connection -- providers would have to connect you, even if you live in a remote village. Consultations for the plan won't even start until early 2016, but the hope is to eventually make broadband a basic utility like electricity or water.
