According to a recent report, the cost of rolling out next-generation broadband Internet connectivity could run as high as £28.8 billion. According to the Broadband Stakeholder Group (BSG) the lowest cost option would run £5.1 billion.

The new fibre Internet connectivity would offer speeds of up to 100 MBPS. The cheaper option is called Fibre to the cabinet. The more costly solution would run fibre all the way to a user's home.

Other than cost, the big difference is that the more expensive option would provide speeds of up to 1Gbps. A recent government review has advised the state to not provide monetary aid to improve the broadband infrastructure.
