Fujitsu is to create a superfast broadband network for rural parts of the UK, rivalling BT's service.
Virgin Media and TalkTalk have already said they will use it to provide internet services. It will also be open to local authorities.
Much of the system will be built on BT infrastructure, such as underground ducting and phone poles, which it has been forced to open up to competitors.
