    a large pot of money that is being used to help with rolling out superfast broadband across the UK What is usually required for funding to be given to an area is for the local council and also BT to also dip into their pockets to help fund the rollout to the specified areas The original target had been for 100 000 homes and businesses to have been connected by the end of 2013 so with us only being 9 days over that target we don t think that was a bad estimate The longer term target now is to reach 96 of homes and businesses in Wales by the end of 2015 and in total it should see around an extra 690 000 properties able to connect to superfast broadband that would have been left without otherwise The Culture Secretary Maria Miller said It s brilliant news that more than 100 000 Welsh homes and businesses are already gaining real social and commercial advantages as a result of the nationwide rollout The contribution that the Governments delivery of superfast broadband by 2017 will make to the economic growth of the nation cannot be underestimated Filed under Fibre broadband News Tags Broadband Wales Superfast Cymru Project Superfast fibre optic broadband Wales Author Mark 2 47 pm Comments 0 No Comments No comments yet RSS feed for comments on this post TrackBack URL Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Search for Blogroll Broadband News Broadband Speed Test Mobile Broadband Categories Broadband Bundles Broadband Speeds Business Broadband Fibre broadband Gaming Home Broadband IPTV Mobile Broadband News Offers Satellite broadband Wireless Internet Archives August 2014 May 2014 April 2014 March 2014 February 2014 January 2014 December 2013 November 2013 October 2013 September 2013 August 2013 July 2013

    covering the extra funds It is these areas that BT themselves wouldn t roll out their fibre optic broadband too with just their own investment as they said it didn t make financial sense for them to do so It is now estimated that more than 200 000 premises are connected to a fibre optic enabled cabinet as part of the BDUK scheme Initially the UK government had planned to have 90 of the UK with connections to fibre optic broadband by the end of 2015 however this target isn t going to be met and the revised target is to reach 95 by the end of 2017 Filed under Fibre broadband Tags BDUK Fibre optic broadband Super Switch On Day Author Mark 12 29 pm Comments 0 No Comments No comments yet RSS feed for comments on this post TrackBack URL Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Search for Blogroll Broadband News Broadband Speed Test Mobile Broadband Categories Broadband Bundles Broadband Speeds Business Broadband Fibre broadband Gaming Home Broadband IPTV Mobile Broadband News Offers Satellite broadband Wireless Internet Archives August 2014 May 2014 April 2014 March 2014 February 2014 January 2014 December 2013

  • Fibre optic broadband
    to invest in fibre themselves The TalkTalk chairman Sir Charles Dunstone had called for regulatory intervention because of the public funding that BT are receiving from the government to help roll out their fibre optic broadband network to non commercial areas of the country BT are investing 2 5 billion of their own money in their fibre optic network which should cover two thirds of British homes and businesses The government have a pot of money to help cover the final third that BT deem not to be commercially viable for them to roll out to off their own back The governments money is in the Broadband Delivery UK BDUK pot and so far only BT has won the extra money that different rural areas can bid for after Fujitsu who were the only other main bidder for the funds had pulled out meaning that BT are basically a shoe in for the new contracts put forward He also called for Ofcom to look into the wholesale prices that BT is able to charge for other providers to have access to it s superfast broadband network however Mr Livingston from BT countered this by saying These criticisms are coming from people I can only describe as copper Luddites They don t want to see the UK getting fibre BT fibre is open to any provider in the UK on the same terms as BT there are 50 or 60 of them that s not what I call a monopoly Sir Charles told the Financial Times We need to regulate fibre and to check where the money is going There is so much government money going into subsidising higher broadband speeds but no one really knows where it is going and how it is being spent Filed under Fibre broadband News Tags BT fibre broadband Fibre optic broadband TalkTalk claim BT Monopoly Author Mark 1 26 pm Comments 0 September 16 2011 Fibre broadband mobile broadband roll out is too slow Fibre optic broadband and mobile broadband networks is taking too long according to the culture secretary Jeremy Hunt Mr Hunt believes that the UK is in danger of falling behind the rest of Europe by taking too long to get things sorted He liked the problems to how we dealth with our railways by saying We need to ensure we do not make the same mistake in broadband that we made in railways building our high speed network 45 years after the French and 62 years after the Japanese PIA physical infrastructure access has to be sorted out and quickly in a way that allows fair competition with different providers able to invest in our broadband infrastructure The price that BT wants to charge rivals for access to their underground ducts and telephone poles so that they can install or lay their own fibre network are due this month but it is likely to be a case that the prices will be disputed by BT s rivals as too high
