Community Broadband Fund announced by Defra

Defra announced today that a new Rural Community Broadband Fund, expected to be worth up to £20million, will be set up to help end the digital and social divide suffered by rural areas. The broadband scheme will be jointly funded by the Rural Development Programme for England and Broadband Delivery UK – details on how the fund will operate and the process for applications will be published later in the year.
