UK Government Pledges Funding To Help Develop Broadband Speeds [news.bbc.co.uk]
The UK government is spending 1m to develop technologies to boost future broadband speeds. The money is being spent on research that could boost browsing speeds to between 1 and 10 gigabits per second. The technologies being researched are all to do with broadband delivered by fibre-optic cables.

Some of the 13 projects being funded aim to make it easier and cheaper to build fibre networks to ensure they can reach as many people as possible. The cash is being put up by the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) for research that will set firms on the path to creating all the pieces of future "ultra-fast" broadband networks.
