Plans that will see fiber optic cable broadband rolled out across the UK are to be discussed at an upcoming industry event. The government is holding an open day on July 15th in London, where it will invite potential partners and Internet service providers to give their ideas on plans to ensure universal broadband plans are a success. In particular, the event will consider how to ensure all homes and businesses have access to 2Mbps broadband by 2012, as well as ways to guarantee fibre optic broadband is available in remote areas. The idea will then be considered by Broadband Delivery UK, which is responsible for the government's Internet plans.
