The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, my right hon. Friend Mr Paterson, meets regularly with his counterpart at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport to discuss roll-out of the £530 million rural broadband programme. We are determined to deliver this quickly to provide 90% of premises with superfast broadband at 24 megabits a second, and elsewhere with standard broadband of at least two megabits a second. Future discussions will also focus on the £250 million additional broadband funding announced as part of the spending review.
