New UK Wireless Network Tax Raises Concern

Mark.JUK (1222360) writes "The Valuation Office Agency (VOA), which compiles and maintains business rating and council tax valuation lists for England and Wales, is reportedly getting ready to impose business rates (tax) upon UK wireless networks regardless of their status. The move has raised concern because many community driven wireless broadband ( Wi-Fi , WiMAX ) ISPs, which often exist in locations where the big players have failed to deliver adequate services (remote and rural areas), operate off some already very thin margins. Such a move could damage the UK government’s plan to deliver a universal minimum broadband speed of 2Mbps to the whole country by 2012."
