What steps his Department is taking to expand the availability of gigabit-capable broadband throughout the UK.
9 July 2020
We are investing £5 billion to ensure gigabit-capable broadband is delivered for residents in those hardest to reach parts of the country.
Alongside this £5 billion, we are also removing barriers to make it quicker, easier and cheaper to deploy new gigabit-capable broadband networks across the country.
For example, we have introduced legislation to make it easier for operators to deploy broadband in blocks of flats and will be legislating to mandate gigabit connectivity in new homes.
