The Independent Networks Cooperative Association (INCA) has launched a scheme allowing consumers to flag up connectivity blackspots.

Under the Super-fast Broadband Not-spot Registration Scheme, people living in areas without fibre coverage can highlight the absence of this utility.

INCA is made up of organisations which actively develop super-fast broadband projects in these sorts of areas - those which have been overlooked by BT and Virgin Media's commercial rollouts.

"Often the schemes provide fibre-optic connections directly to premises, offering very high-speed, affordable broadband services," INCA noted. "Other companies offer wireless broadband services and in some cases satellite for remote areas."

The association explained that rural schemes are typically based on a certain percentage of the local population signing up for a service before the network is built.

Should the Super-fast Broadband Not-spot Registration Scheme identify strong demand in a certain area, this may increase the likelihood of a broadband provider investing in fibre services.

INCA says completing the registration form can help build the case for better, faster broadband everywhere in the UK.
