Labour promises free superfast broadband for every home if it wins a December general election in United Kingdom then free full-fibre broadband internet will by provided for all by 2030.
A Labour government would establish a British Broadband public service to oversee a multibillion-pound plan to end slow and patchy coverage and boost 5G connectivity across the country, the party’s leader will say.
“Not just any broadband, but the very fastest,” Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn promised. “Full-fiber broadband to every home, in every part of our country, for free.”

Corbyn added: “And once it’s up and running, instead of you forking out for your monthly bill, we’ll tax the giant corporations fairly — the Facebooks and the Googles — to cover the running costs.”
The chancellor, Sajid Javid, attacked the plan as an “attempt to confiscate billions of pounds’ worth of people’s savings”.
Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson called it “some crackpot scheme that would involve many, many billions of taxpayers’ money nationalizing a British business.”
Conservatives vowed, they will pour money into the National Health Service, improve roads and bus services, and put 20,000 extra police officers on the streets.
