Following yesterday’s Spring Statement by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond, it was confirmed the Isle of Wight will benefit from an extra £800,000 as part of the £190m national Local Full Fibre Network (LFFN) scheme.
The aim of the LFFN challenge fund is to stimulate commercial investment in “gigabit capable” broadband networks. The Isle of Wight joins other authorities around the country
|Isle of Wight||£0.8 million|
|Shetland Islands||£2.0 million|
|South Essex||£4.5 million|
|North Wales||£8.0 million|
