On Monday 2nd October, the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT) launched two consultations, one on the Broadband Universal Service Obligation (USO) and one setting out its proposed policy approach to connecting Very Hard to Reach (VHTR) premises across the UK.

The government’s aim is to use these consultations to understand how the industry and affected stakeholder groups respond to its current proposed policy direction and future policy interventions.

DSIT welcomes responses from consumers, businesses, market participants, and representative organisations for both consultations.

Please note that these consultations are led by DSIT’s Digital Infrastructure policy unit, not Building Digital UK (BDUK).
