Responding to Boris Johnson’s recent pledge to provide fast internet for every home by 2025 if he becomes Prime Minister, Andrew Glover, Chair of ISPA, said: “Boris Johnson’s ambitious commitment to achieve full fibre coverage by 2025 is welcome, but needs to be matched with ambitious regulatory change, including reform of the Fibre Tax. Broadband is a largely privately financed infrastructure and together with outdated planning laws, fibre business rates are holding our members back from accelerating their roll-out plans.” To read ISPA’s response on the ISPA website, click here.
