The Government has published a call for evidence entitled 'Extending Local Full Fibre Broadband Networks'. This call is seeking views on how the Government could best use public funding to encourage further and faster deployment of full fibre broadband networks.

More information can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/call-for-evidence-extending-local-full-fibre-broadband-networks.

My team will be responding to the call which has a deadline of 31 January 2017.
