The LFFN Programme aims to stimulate commercial investment in full fibre networks across the whole of UK landscape, including rural and urban locations in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, by demonstrating approaches that encourage additional private investment and by making sustainable commercial deployments viable.

The LFFN Challenge Fund is a government capital grant programme of up to £200m with £190m remaining for competitive Waves, to help deliver the fastest and most reliable digital communications network available. Local bodies who can harness public sector connectivity and aggregate private sector demand to stimulate the market to build new and extend existing fibre networks in their local areas can apply to the Challenge Fund.
