DCMS recall (Broadband)

Inquiry

In January 2021 the Committee reported that problems with the rollout of superfast broadband across the UK meant that digital inequality risks compounding the economic inequality “harshly” exposed by the pandemic.

In this inquiry the Committee will recall DCMS officials for an update on progress towards the Government’s revised timeline for rolling out broadband and improving digital inclusion for people and business across the country, especially in hard-to-reach rural areas, and progress against the Committee’s report recommendations.

If you have evidence on the national programme to roll out broadband that could inform the Committee’s questioning, please submit it here by Monday 1 November 2021. 

This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Monday 1 November 2021.
