Broadband for all may get £1 billion boost


by David Allen

The government could be planning to invest millions of pounds into the Broadband for All project which is one of the main parts of the Digital Britain plan presented by the communications minister Lord Carter.

The possible investment was announced by Lord Mandelson, the Business Secretary, at a Digital Britain conference.

One of the basic requirements of the plan is for all homes to be provided with a minimum broadband service of around 2 Mbps, no matter where they are located.

However, in order for these minimum requirements to be met, the government is having to reorganise the mobile phone spectrum that is currently being used by the mobile broadband providers Vodafone and O2.

It would seem that the plan is falling into place, all be it at a slow pace.

However there are so many factors needed to work together in order to pull this off, one slip up could soon bring the house of cards down.
