Suggested by who?

What "government funding" was this?

Where is the evidence?

On the other hand in current banking circumstances I could very easily be convinced (without much evidence at all) that their bank loans (£millions?) have been called in, which would likely be the end of their business plan.

No previous sign that the company was receiving funding for Bournemouth and Dundee.

There is a project in North Wales where assembly funding might be withdrawn, but that is more likely to be a side effect of concern over the firm.

There is some expectation of "support from the public purse" in the Anglesey project. WiMax is involved too which sometimes means there is funding from Intel Capital (e.g. Pipex Wireless's WiMax in Warwick and er... anywhere else?).

" i3 Group's CEO Elfed Thomas explained: "Consumers in not spots can receive up to £700 to put towards broadband connection, we indirectly benefit from that.""
(anybody know the details of this scheme?)

That is just one of the three projects that are well known, any cross use of this to fund other projects is a pretty serious thing

If the Govt. funding is withdrawn from one project, it will have to be funded from the same pot the other two are, or shut down.

Maybe people think that BT FTTC will come soon and they can keep their existing ISPs.

weren't all these projects touted as partnerships with councils ?

Perhaps council use of the infractructure, rather than a grant or subsidy, as per :-

"City of York Council has signed a £13.7 million, eight year contract with the option to extend for a further two years with Pinacl Solutions and H2O Networks to provide it with a managed service environment for networking across the city-wide Council's estate which includes 67 schools, 14 libraries, accommodation and council offices as well as sports facilities."
