Part of the problem is that a new report from the Future Telecommunications Infrastructure Review (FTIR) has shown that without this government-led initiative, it will take decades for the fiber to reach only three quarters of the population, as the rest of the country will not be able to reach the fastest speeds, The government will receive between £ 3 billion and £ 5 billion to ensure companies invest in building fiber infrastructure in rural areas.
