Broadband Speeds To Be Investigated By MPs

MPs are set to investigate the UK’s broadband speeds after the publication of the Digital Britain Report on the 16th June.

The aim of the investigation is to understand whether the goal of 2Mbps broadband speeds in every home within the UK is “ambitious enough” (South Korea have recently set a minimum broadband speed limit of 1Gbps).

They are also looking into whether the 50p broadband tax plans are fair.

Many critics of the 50p broadband tax plans are dubious as to whether the tax raised will be enough to fund the roll out of next generation broadband to the reported 30% of UK homes that are currently without adequate broadband access.

There are even doubts as to whether the goal to have 2Mbps broadband speeds in every UK home is achievable, not to mention whether they are fast enough.

As yet another investigation gets underway, some industry specialists are concerned that the Digital Britain Report may not survive a change in government and that the broadband industry itself is being bogged down by ongoing investigations and reports, rather than actual action.

Do you have any comments on this deal?
