The UK Government launched its much anticipated £400 million Digital Infrastructure Investment Fund (DIIF) on 3 rd July 2017. The fund is intended to “unlock over £1 billion for full fibre broadband, and kick-start better broadband connections across the country,” according to HM Treasury. It will be managed and invested on a commercial basis by private sector partners, generating a commercial return for the Government, and is designed to ignite interest from private finance to invest in the sector, resulting in more alternative providers entering and expanding in the market.
