star this property answer text <p>As set out in the Online Harms White Paper, the Government will establish a new statutory duty of care to make companies take more responsibility for the safety of their users. Compliance with this duty of care will be overseen and enforced by an independent regulator. We are currently consulting on which enforcement powers the regulator should have at its disposal to ensure it can take effective action against companies that breach their legal duty. Alongside this consultation, we continue to work with industry to understand the implications of the changing technologies and to promote approaches that work for the good of all.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Superfast contracts include a take-up clawback mechanism to ensure public subsidies within the Superfast infrastructure are kept to a minimum. Clawback is generated over a 7 year period following completion of build implementation, based on customer take-up of service. Current estimates project take-up clawback to be at least £712m over this 7 year period. Some of this clawback has been returned early by agreement with the suppliers, and this is being reinvested.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government’s Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review considered different policy and regulatory approaches that would help create the right conditions to accelerate fibre investment and extend coverage across the whole of the UK. The review concluded that the most effective way to deliver this was to promote competition between fibre networks where possible, supported by changes in the regulatory framework and only intervene in a small proportion of the country that can not support commercial investment.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department does not hold this information. BT gainshare/clawback was built into all of the Superfast contracts. This has been re-invested into a number of recent Superfast contracts and change requests. However those contracts and change requests also included a blend of other funding from BDUK, Local Bodies, Suppliers, ERDF and EAFRD. Furthermore in many cases those contracts have consisted of a mixture of Fibre to the Cabinet and Fibre to the Premise. Therefore it is difficult to determine a one to one correlation between clawback and Full Fibre connections.</p> more like this
