IT Managers Value UK’s Broadband Speed Plans
A recent research project carried out by the British Computer Society has revealed that two thirds of IT managers value the upcoming speed developments in the UK’s broadband sector.
Claiming that it will help businesses if broadband services were better, the IT sector is definitely on board with the Digital Britain report which was published by the government back in April.
However, while advancements in broadband speeds and nationwide roll out are welcomed, it is said that more training regarding the use of the internet would also be beneficial.
The Chief Executive Officer of the British Computer Society, David Clarke, said, “Our ability to process, share and manage information will determine the success of our society. To be successful we need a high performing IT education system and a population with the IT skills to be productive, empowered citizens”.
Mr Clarke certainly has a point. It is all well and good introducing better broadband services, but if consumers and the workforce are unsure as how to make the most of them then the advancements could be wasted.
Virgin Media announced plans earlier this year to introduce new retail drop in centres where consumers would be able to learn more about the Internet and common technical issues.
