The Labour party has set out ambitious plans to provide free full-fibre broadband to every home and business in the country by 2030, if it wins the election.

Jeremy Corbyn says it would be made possible by bringing BT’s Open Reach broadband business into public ownership, meaning the ongoing cost of the service would be partly funded by a new tax on technology companies, such as Facebook and Google. Boris Johnson has dismissed the proposal as a “crazed Communist scheme”.
