BT and Fujitsu have signed contracts to supply broadband under the government’s Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) framework, a step allowing local authorities to begin their tendering processes, according to local media reports.
BDUK is allocating £530m of government funding to help bring broadband to the one-third of UK premises that would not otherwise be served by the broadband market. The overall target is to give the UK the best superfast broadband network in Europe by 2015. The government wants to provide superfast broadband to 90% of the UK, with a minimum of 2Mbps available to all UK
