I am answering this question because broadband is within my area of responsibility.

The Department for Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) provides regular updates on the progress being made on the rural broadband programme, which can be found on our website at:

http://www.culture.gov.uk/what_we_do/telecommunications_and_online/7763.aspx

Local authorities are leading the rollout in their areas and I anticipate that councils will provide regular updates on the progress they are making.
