A little reading from The Register
It was an inflammatory and political session, indeed I saw a couple of posters on this forum defending BT's position via social media but it does raise a couple of questions.
BT claim to be spending about 2,500,000,000 reaching 66% of the UK's homes and businesses.
BDUK is to add another 24% to that to take the total to 90%. Now, according to BT their total spend for that 24% is going to be 700,000,000, and according to the National Audit Office their CapEx is going to be around the 360,000,000 mark.
Is it just me or is BDUK failing as a 'gap funding' model if BT are actually going to be spending less
per home passed, and noticeably less at that, than on their commercial rollout?
