BDUK broadband roll-out hits 8,000 homes per £1M spent

Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), the government-owned programme that aims to deliver a 24Mbps broadband service to parts of the UK left out of the commercial roll-out, has passed 4.4 million homes up to the end of March 2016, hitting 8,036 properties for every million pounds of taxpayers’ money spent.

To date, DCMS has funded BDUK to the tune of £550.8m in grants to local authorities and budget transfers to the devolved Scottish and Welsh administrations.
