The guide is a project that I worked on for the Independent Networks Co-operative Association (INCA). I gathered information and contributions from industry experts and next-generation access projects in the UK, and then distilled the key information into a short, accessible summary of the broadband scene in the UK. This information is accompanied by information to kick start broadband project development, and I’m very pleased that BDUK is now referencing the guide as a resource for community groups looking to bid into the Rural Comunity Broadband Fund.
The second edition, published 18 months after the first, brings things up to date in terms of technology, policy and market development – it’s amazing how much has happened in such a short space of time.
Malcolm Corbett, chief exective of INCA, said: “This guide is a great primer to the issues surrounding next generation broadband and is accompanied by an in depth, expert Knowledge Base. We welcome your comments on and input to both products.”
