What is the UK Government doing?

Not long ago, the government wanted everyone in the UK to have “superfast” broadband by 2015, but have now had to lower their sights. At present the government aims to ensure that 90% of “people in each local authority area” can access a superfast broadband ISP service by 2015 (the last 10% will have to make do with download speeds of “at least 2Mbps”). BDUK is responsible for allocating central Government funds – click here for our BDUK news items. The rather inadequte BDUK definition of “superfast broadband” can be found here.
