Pretty good news for those of us in deepest darkest Norfolk

But still apprehensive until I know how and where the money will be spent

Yep that will be the interesting bit. I hope BT don't bid for it, I'm so tired of people bashing their FTTC/FTTP (and possible Satellite) deliveries I'd just love them to say.. sorry we aren't interested.

In fact it would be better for them to stay our of any bids like this, even if they do good they would still get slated for taking taxpayers money.

Good luck though I do hope you get something worthwhile and value for money! smile Are Virgin in the Norfolk? If so hopefully they will put in a bid to expand their network

I live in rural Wiltshire so it will be interesting to see what happens, we are getting £4m which I dont think will go very far but the county council are spending £16m so £20m in total should help.

I am not quite sure what the timescales are though, can companies now bid for some of this funding?.

And I think many are also tired of strange members who go around saying nice things about BT, seems a very odd hobby.

Satellite is not acceptable as it is a cop out and gives anyone the ability to claim 100% coverage, perhaps for a lighthouse on the north coast of Scotland but not just where companies like BT and Vigin cant be bothered.

Aimed at me? I'm just a realist. I don't jump on the bashing bandwagon like the rest of the flock. I don't think I've ever said anything "nice" about BT, I just take a pragmatic view.

I think they expect to have around £60m, 15M from the council, 15M from the gov and 30M from industry(?!?!)

Idealists can always move to Finland. As for the counties who got this funding well-done, however there is a huge amount of party politics at play!

My views are my experiences.

Let hope they get a bid in, if not its time to get lots of names in your area and pester them until they do!

i expect it will need to be an open access operator as that will be one of the conditions of the bidding -- that could be interesting as well
