UK Broadband Strategy

The UK government is committed to delivering the best superfast broadband network in Europe by 2015.

To do this, Government:

Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), a unit within the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), is responsible for managing the Government’s broadband funding. Individual projects are the responsibility of local authorities and the Devolved Administrations, as set out in BDUK’s delivery model.

Government's ambition is to provide superfast broadband to at least 90 per cent of premises in the UK and to provide universal access to standard broadband with a speed of at least 2Mbps.
