But we’ve been told that
“there are two aspects to the NBS (National Broadband Scheme), one which allows councils to procure suppliers on an full access basis and one on a restricted access basis. The first of these has been approved, the second (which was designed for BT) hasn’t yet”
Any info on the second part around anywhere? EU State Aid Agreement?
Also, one of the comments in the above article was
Could you point me at a source for this rule please?
At the moment, the EU is the only thing standing between us and fast broadband! Fastershire (Glos BDUK project) have the money and want to give it to BT, BT want to take it and do the work, but BT's legal department are worried about complying with state aid rules so won't agree it!
