BT is "not impacting on rural communities" despite winning all of the rural broadband contracts from the Government, the head of an influential committee has said.
Labour's Margaret Hodge warned other competitors "might be squeezed out" of the rural broadband market by BT's dominance.
Whilst BT claims it is making further concessions, this is not impacting on rural communities.
Local authorities are still contractually prevented from sharing information to see if they are securing best terms for the public money they spend.
Communities can still not access the detailed data they need to understand whether they will be covered by BT's scheme in their area.
Other broadband providers might be squeezed out of the rural market by BT's actions.
