BT Agrees £31.75m Dorset BDUK Deal


Hot on the heels of the BDUK announcement of the Scotland deal comes news that BT has agreed a £31.75 million deal with Dorset County Council to provide access to fibre broadband to 97 percent of all homes and businesses in the county under the Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) initiative.

The company will put £12.86 million towards the Superfast Dorset project, which will also receive £9.44 million from central government for the rollout of fibre in areas where it is not commercially viable to do so.

This figure has been matched by Dorset County Council and the county’s district and borough councils, who have also invested a further £1.3 million to maximise the benefits of the network.
