Which? responds as government reveals first areas to benefit from £5bn gigabit broadband upgrade

Rocio Concha, Director of Policy and Advocacy at Which?, said:

“This year has highlighted the importance of fast and reliable broadband, so it’s good to see the government prioritise areas which have suffered for too long with poor internet connections.

“The government should clarify when these communities will actually be able to benefit from these connections, as consumers are relying on the internet more than ever and improving connectivity will play an important role as we recover from the pandemic.”
