Emily Weekes Broadband, News

The government has today announced a £1bn investment in digital infrastructure as part of the Autumn Statement, with the aim of widening access to high-speed fibre broadband to businesses across the UK.

Onecom offers high-speed fibre broadband as part of its tailored unified communications packages.

Welcoming the announcement, Darren Ridge, CEO of Onecom, said: “Fast, reliable digital infrastructure is not a luxury – it’s a necessity, and one which will only become more important as the ‘Internet of Things’ becomes a larger part of how we run our businesses.

“The government clearly recognises that investment in high-speed internet is an investment in the future of British business. We firmly believe that fibre is the future, and making it available across the UK is key to ensuring that the nation plays its part as a digital leader on the world stage.”
