The UK’s fibre future is within reach. Together we can create a more connected, productive and competitive economy. Full Fibre will help significantly boost the UK economy, while bringing thousands more people back into the workforce.
In 2019 and 2021 the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) looked into the impact of our Full Fibre roll out. This focused on productivity and workforce benefits, concluding that the productivity boost to the economy was £59 billion.
In 2023, we asked the Cebr to update their work. The potential boost to UK productivity now stands at £72 billion by 2030.
Crucially, the latest report highlights that our roll out could bring over half a million people back into the workforce, this includes significant numbers of women with dependent children, older workers, and informal carers.
