Improving broadband for very hard to reach areas

The Department of Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) wants to hear views and experiences of broadband connectivity in rural and remote areas. The survey closes on 11th June. In addition, DCMS would also like to receive information on both the known benefits of broadband services and the current barriers to deployment and take-up. Additional evidence, either from the UK or abroad, on technology availability, maturity, capabilities and costs, from suppliers and vendors is also welcomed.
