the UK Government’s Project Gigabit has arrived! What are your thoughts? Is this an upgrade on the previous scheme or just a continuation of it?
A Facebook user mentioned that "in its election manifesto the government promised to roll out gigabit broadband to every home in the country by 2025. Last November that commitment was changed to 85%. The total budget is £5bn - but only £1.2 billion for the period up to 2024. When will the rest arrive?
The first areas to benefit will be Cambridgeshire, Cornwall, Cumbria, Dorset, Durham, Essex, Northumberland, South Tyneside and Tees Valley. The next roll out areas include Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Norfolk, Shropshire, Suffolk and Worcestershire."
