£250m to Boost Rural Broadband

The government has announced how £250m will be used to improve broadband services in remote areas.

The money will be divided between local councils and each will have a month to decide how they will spend it, to make sure the majority of homes in the area receive high speed broadband.

Culture secretary Maria Miller said: "We want to make sure that Britain is one of the best countries in the world for broadband."

The government has however been criticized, for how it has handled the process so far.
