Next Generation Broadband - access will NOT be dependent on business buy in

No sooner had Cornwall Council Cabinet member Carolyn Rule sent me a statement saying definitively that residential access to Next Generation Broadband will be dependent on business take-up do I get an email from an officer stating the exact opposite.

Nigel Ashcroft, the Director of NGB for Cornwall (and therefore the person who should know) tells me:

"Households will be upgraded at the same time as businesses and are not dependant (sic) on business take up"

I'm very grateful that in this case that it appears Cllr Rule doesn't know what she is talking about.
