In December 2010, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), in partnership with the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, published a strategy document entitled Britain’s Superfast Broadband Future. The document set out the Government’s ambition that the UK ‘should have the best superfast broadband network in Europe by 2015’. As well as committing to benchmark the UK against other EU countries, the Government intends to ensure that all UK premises can experience download speeds of at least 2Mbit/s by 2015 and that ninety per cent of premises can access superfast broadband. To this end, it has allocated £530 million to stimulate commercial investment in the rollout of high speed broadband in rural communities.
