Offline on Internet Street

A Polish man who bought a house on Internet Street in Warsaw is selling it because he can't get a broadband connection.

He said: "I have written dozens of letters to the national telecom regulator. They found that actually it was too expensive to put a line into the street just for me. So I am moving."

The regulator now plans to create a map showing the many 'blank areas' in Poland which still lack basic internet infrastructure. Only around 11% of the Polish population has access to broadband internet.
