The DCMS Select Committee of cross-party MPs has today published the results of their inquiry into the Government’s £5bn pledge to ensure that 85%+ of the UK can access a “gigabit-capable” broadband service by 2025 and the role of 5G mobile.

The Government has today published the draft procurement strategy for their new £5bn Gigabit Broadband Programme (F20), which is a consultation on their plan to ensure that gigabit-capable networks reach a “minimum” of 85% UK coverage by the end of 2025 (before getting “as close to 100% as possible” thereafter).

A new report from EY has predicted that the United Kingdom will need to increase the pace of its existing “gigabit-capable broadband” rollout by 85% to 10,000+ premises passed per day in order to meet even the recently reduced 2025 coverage target.

The Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, has today published his 2020 Spending Review and in so doing has kicked off the new £5bn UK Gigabit Broadband Programme, which previously aimed to ensure that “every home” could access a 1Gbps capable connection by the end of 2025 but now expects a “minimum” of 85% coverage by that date.

Liberty Global, the parent of cable broadband ISP Virgin Media UK and various other European operators, has informed shareholders that they’ll be starting work on 10Gbps broadband connectivity “pretty quickly” by using a mix of a future DOCSIS 4.0 upgrades and more Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) technology.

A new piece of research has helped to reveal the top 10 UK council areas by average (median) broadband ISP upload speed, which perhaps unsurprisingly sees KCOM’s full fibre dominated city of Hull (East Yorkshire) come top on 13.7Mbps.

Virgin Media appears to have continued to expand the availability of their latest HUB 4.0 (ARRIS TG3492LG-VMB) broadband router under their “Hub Swap” programme, which is giving existing customers on various different tiers the chance to “upgrade to our latest Hub 4 at no extra cost.”

A new report from the National Audit Office, which examines the original £1.9bn Superfast Broadband Programme (SFBB), has warned that the Government may struggle to achieve its ambition of bringing gigabit-capable broadband to all by the end of 2025 and thus risks “leaving the hardest to reach areas even further behind.”
