Gigabit broadband: Rural households urged to claim upgrade cash
The government is urging struggling rural broadband customers to apply for cash it has set aside to pay for ultra high-speed connections.
Digital Minister Matt Warman said £70m is "still there for the taking".
The gigabit voucher scheme is part of the government's election pledge to bring broadband speeds of up to 1,000Mbps to the whole country by 2025.
It says nearly half a million homes have been connected with the help of government subsidies.
The average UK broadband speed is around 64Mbps (megabits per second), according to the latest Ofcom figures.
Mr Warman said the 2025 target was ambitious and he could commit only to "getting as close as we can".
"We're talking about a target that's five years away. We are absolutely confident that we are doing all the right things," he said.
