Intel's Barrett to bash Blair, Brown, on bandwidth

And famous country Intel has more bandwidth than Italy and Spain combined...

The CEO of the biggest semiconductor outfit in the world said today he would tell UK Chancellor of the Exchequer and any other government minister he might meet that our country was not doing enough for end users and small businesses. Craig Barrett, CEO of Santa Clara based the Intel Corporation (ticker: INTC), told fify journalists that he would be attempting to persuade UK government ministers they could do better by the citizens. Earlier in the day, Barrent showed a slide which seemed to suggest that European companies were lagging behind Intel, itself, in bandwidth. The Intel slide had the following figures on it: UK, 1500Mbps, Holland 600Mpbs, Intel 256Mbps, Italy 65Mbps and Spain 45Mbps. Barrett said he was going to stress to Chancellor Brown the importance of education. He said: "I'm going to say bandwidth, bandwidth, bandwidth, bandwith" to Brown. He said: "I'm going to say education, education, education, education" to Brown. Sorry, we thought that was David Blunkett's job... ®
