Broadband for all, but not all rural areas


by David Allen

The government’s plans for broadband for all have been greeted by many people as a great idea.

Unfortunately for some people and businesses in rural areas the plans may not make any difference.

This is because the pledge is to connect all households with school aged children.

With no mention of businesses or other households, this could still mean problems for local economies, with some businesses being forced to relocate or even close.

But it stands to reason that in areas where there are households with school aged children, the equipment needed to provide broadband will be place for everyone else too.

It is the fear of the CLA that rural businesses will be left out in favour of the towns and cities.

This may be true initially, but eventually broadband should be reaching every corner of the UK.
