judgecorp writes: The British Government is discussing a role for 4G in the project to extend rural broadband coverage beyond the reach of fibre. There is £250 million of public money to fill in the gaps left by the £530 Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) programme — BDUK's efforts to extend fibre have been criticised because despite promises of a competitive process, all the BDUK money has gone to BT. At a meeting with mobile operators today, the Department of Culture Media and Sport hopes to set up a more competitive 4G fill-in effort.
