We all know how important it is for homes and businesses to have a decent internet connection. That’s why BT has partnered with Spacehive to make it easier for communities to share the cost of installing faster broadband. We’re working with Ofcom, the independent communications regulator, to deliver the broadband Universal Service Obligation (USO). It’s a piece of government legislation that gives eligible UK addresses the right to request a ‘decent’ broadband connection (meaning it’s capable of delivering download speeds of 10 Mbps and upload speeds of 1 Mbps). Where the cost of upgrading the network is higher than the Contribution from BT, as defined by Government and Ofcom, eligible addresses have the ability to come together and collectively fund the additional costs for their community via Spacehive. If the target is reached, and all pledges are collected, we will be able to start delivering the upgrade. To learn more, visit our website: www.BT.com/USO
