£5 Billion of Taxpayer Money to Support Rural Fibre Broadband

The Register has an informative article from Oct 2019 about the use of £5 billion in taxpayer money to fund rural broadband rollout including information on some of the techniques that Openreach is looking at to put that money to best use such as a trench-digging diamond cutter.

The cutter can apparently enable installation of 700 metres of cabling a day. BT claims that is more than 20 times the length that can be laid by a two-person civil engineer team using traditional methods of drilling and excavation.
