A New Approach To Delivering Superfast Broadband In Rural Areas

 

This joint report from the Carnegie UK Trust and the Plunkett Foundation calls for a new approach to improving the supply of superfast broadband in rural areas.  The report argues that rural communities themselves will need to play a central role in bridging the gap between the broadband deployment plans of government and the market and the current lack of provision – but highlights that these rural communities will need to be better supported, empowered and inspired to take this action.  The report makes recommendations to national and local government, rural and community enterprise support organisations, the telecommunications industry and rural communities.
