UK government boosts broadband funding for remote areas

The British government announced an additional £442 million funding boost, which will grant up to 600,000 more homes and businesses access to superfast broadband.

The scheme is due to the high take-up of superfast broadband connections in areas where the government has subsidized rollout, under the Broadband Delivery U.K. project, according to a Dec. 22 statement.

The funding boost comes from British Telecom, which is releasing £292 million for additional broadband connections, and BDUK savings of £150 million during the first phase of broadband rollout.

Tom Mockridge, the CEO of Liberty Global plc-owned Virgin Media Inc., criticized the scheme, saying the rebates from BT are at odds with Ofcom's plan to split BT from its infrastructure unit Openreach, City A.M. reported the same day.
