Stuart Orr, Advisory Partner at EY, comments on investment in fibre broadband:

The £200m announced today to accelerate the rollout of faster broadband comes at an important time. While the UK scores well compared to other markets in roll out of ‘entry level’ fibre broadband, other countries and their economies are already benefiting from extensive coverage of ‘full fibre’. At the same time, a continued focus on connectivity speeds in rural areas must remain a priority for providers.
