Last January of this year, the UK government submitted plans for a 530 million pound project that would allow them to improve internet in rural areas of the UK.

Since the project requires state aid, it had to first be approved by the European Commission in Brussels, this has now been given the go ahead, meaning the project can now begin.

The first areas to see this new and improved connectivity will be Surrey and Wales, after which Cumbria, Rutford, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire will follow.

All of the work during which time will be carried out by BT, which is bound to be a relief for the slowly dying company.
