Defra launched Rural Community Broadband Fund

This is funded by Defra and Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), and complements BDUK’s mainstream broadband rollout programme. The Fund enables the funding of superfast broadband projects in the most hard to reach areas in England, bringing superfast broadband to a greater number of communities than would otherwise be reached. This will ensure that a greater proportion of businesses and consumers in those communities can take advantage of the benefits of superfast broadband. The Fund is being delivered as part of the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE).

For more information about the fund and details on how to apply, please visit the RDPE Network website.
