answer text <p>The Government published its Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review (FTIR) in July 2018, setting out its strategy for delivering its target for a nationwide full fibre broadband network by 2033. On 29 October, DCMS published two of the consultations promised in the FTIR, on new legislation to reform existing access agreement arrangements to provide a right of entry for communication providers in cases of absentee landlords, and to ensure full fibre connections to new build developments. At Budget, the Government also announced £200m from the National Productivity Investment Fund (NPIF) to further support the deployment of full fibre to the commercially most difficult to reach premises. In its October Connected Nations report, Ofcom confirmed that full fibre coverage had reached 1.4 million premises in May 2018, up from less than 900,000 premises in May 2017. Commitments to full fibre rollout from industry have also continued, for example with CityFibre recently announcing a £2.5 billion investment plan to expand its full fibre network to 5 million homes.</p>

The exact level of this growth remains highly uncertain, with predictions ranging from 6.4 billion to 75 billion devices on the global market by 2020. This level of uncertainty makes the setting of a target unhelpful as it may limit our ambition.</p> more like this
