Full-fibre broadband for all to cost £30bn

The government has released its Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review, setting the stage for the national roll-out of a full-fibre broadband network.

Deploying a nationwide full-fibre, or fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband network, by 2033 in line with the governments ambitions will cost £30bn under a competitive model, Westminster has revealed.

However, the landmark report said if things continue the way they are going right now, full-fibre networks will only ever reach three-quarters of the country, and will not get there until at least 2038.
