The government is to unveil findings from a long-awaited review of the UK's broadband services.
They will help decide if firms should get subsidies to lay higher-speed cables for homes and businesses.
Industry estimates have put a minimum £5.1bn price tag on fitting the UK for next-generation broadband.
That service would boost the speed of connections linking homes and businesses to the net to 100 Megabits per second (Mbps) and beyond.
The article goes on to say that there is no case for Government subsidy into the project.
