You could argue that faster broadband has great advantages for the
education sector due to students of all ages having greater access
to the information required for their studies.  By that logic it
could be part funded by the Education department.  Equally you could
say that streaming video from the BBC is taking up an ever
increasing chunk of bandwidth and compel the BBC to collaborate with
BT on improving the infrastructure.  Maybe then my BBC Tax - oops
sorry, Television License Fee - would go on something more
meaningful than overpaid 'celebrity' wages.

In the end I think a combination of different factors and
contributors will need to all throw some money in the pot and
collaborate for the good of all of them - and by a happy accident us
as consumers.

It would be nice wouldn't it

Yes it would, notice I said we get the benefit by accident :) Not that I'm cynical or anything :)
