star this property answer text <p>According to Ofcom only 3 per cent of UK premises have access to speeds of less than 2Mbps, down from 11 per cent in 2010. As a result of the commercial and government investments, the number of premises with a broadband service below 2Mbps continues to reduce. The government will however, before the end of 2015, make available options to deliver the minimum 2mbps broadband commitment for all qualifying premises.<br></p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to improving access to quality broadband services to as many people in the UK as possible. This is why £1.7 billion of public money is being invested to support improvements in superfast broadband services across the UK. Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) is committed to bringing superfast broadband access to 95 per cent of UK premises by the end of the year. By 2020, this should reach 97 per cent through a combination of public and commercial investment. To ensure that no one is left behind, the Government is also introducing a new broadband Universal Service Obligation (USO) within this Parliament. The USO will give households and businesses the legal right to request a broadband connection with speeds of at least 10 Megabits, no matter where they live or work.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Security of connected devices, the system they operate in and data is very important to consider in the Internet of Things. That is why security will be a theme throughout the government funded Internet of Things programme (IoTUK). We have included £10m for additional research to design in security, privacy and trust in IoT-related systems. In his report on the Internet of Things the Government Chief Scientist advised that security should be considered at the beginning and throughout the life cycle of Internet of Things applications. We have therefore made security a specific part of the competition scope for the large-scale demonstrator competitions.</p> more like this
