Broadband move

GOVERNMENT cash could be required before some rural areas of the UK receive the benefits of broadband high-speed internet access, BT has warned.

The company has been invited to attend a meeting hosted by the Country Land and Business Association next month.

The CLA is running a campaign, supported by farmers weekly and FWi, to speed up the roll-out of broadband to rural areas.
