Government funds rural broadband

Philip Hammond on Monday announced £200 million of Government funding to extend full-fibre broadband to hard-to-reach rural areas.

The Rural Gigabit Connectivity Programme will install hubs in public buildings such as primary schools and libraries first.

A voucher scheme, part of the National Productivity Investment Fund, will then allow full-fibre connectivity to nearby homes and businesses.

Separately, the Government is making full-fibre connectivity mandatory for new build homes, saying that ‘inexcusable’ sites with poor connections hamper innovation.
