Re: Er.. what?

The govt don't get the cash back, it gets spent on more broadband roll out- so technically the headline is correct it's "...in BT broadband [infrastructure investment]..."

The rural local authority I work for are already well into planning where the reclaimed subsidy will be spent and are under no illusions that the 5% are easy to get to - technologies like Mesh networks come with their own set of problems, but also it turns out it's easier to dig fibre through fields to get to 3 or 4 homes than it is to dig though pavements in cities, so there's hope for the 5% yet.
