Milton Keynes Council Allocated £140k in BDUK Funding

Milton Keynes has been allocated £140k in Broadband Delivery UK funding, announced Fredi Nonyelu CEO of Briteyellow and Chair of Biztech Technology Forum at the Milton Keynes Next Gen conference.

The event on the 30th of May 2012 brought together key industry leaders and exhibitors from across the UK for a conference held at the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel, Milton Keynes.

Speaking at the event Fredi Nonyelu presented the results of the Milton Keynes Broadband Survey and outlined key next steps towards achieving 100% superfast broadband across the city.

The UK government allocation was only £140k, however Milton Keynes council would be contributing £2.4m towards realising Milton Keynes' digital infrastructure plans.

Dr Ann Limb OBE DL Chair of SEMLEP gave the welcome to the event and afterwards spoke to NextGen TV about accelerating the digital infrastructure across the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership.
