Since taking office, Boris Johnson has made some pretty big promises, one of which is his commitment to the UK-wide, full-fibre pledge by 2025 – bringing forward the Government’s former target of 2033 quite significantly by eight years. This is certainly something that has brought the issue forward, but can it be achieved?
Whether you’re a Boris fan or not, our new PM quite rightly pointed out that it was a “disgrace” that rural communities did not yet have access to superfast broadband. According to Ofcom, currently only eight per cent of UK households and businesses have access to full fibre broadband. Compare this to the rest of Europe where 80 per cent have access, and it means we are seriously late to the party.
Toople PLC (LON:TOOP) offers business broadband, fiber, Ethernet first mile and Ethernet data, business mobile phones, cloud PBX and SIP Trunking, and traditional services. Toople works with the big players in the market such as Vodafone & BT.
