Universal Broadband by 2015 – will Radio Frequencies auction affect it?
Andrew Percy: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport whether he has assessed the potential effects on the Government’s commitment to provide universal broadband coverage by 2015 if the auction of the 800MHz and 2,600MHz spectrum does not take place by mid 2012. 
Mr Vaizey [holding answer 7 September 2011]: The timing of the auction is unlikely to impact on the delivery of universal broadband coverage by 2015.
