Broadband quality and affordability for businesses to be reviewed

Broadband quality and affordability for businesses to be reviewed

The government has announced a wide ranging review aimed at improving business access to broadband.

Business secretary Sajid Javid said he wanted every business, regardless of size or location, to benefit from access to fast, reliable connectivity.

He told the annual conference of the EEF manufacturers' group that the review will look at broadband speeds and business needs now and into the future.

The review by the Departments for Business and Culture, Media and Sport will study the level of affordable, high quality fibre broadband available to firms.

Terry Scuoler, chief executive of the EEF, commented: " Access to high quality broadband is critical for business and manufacturers increasingly rely on it.

"This review is therefore timely and should lead to a significant push by Government and providers to help improve digital connectivity and affordability so that companies in the UK can take advantage of more global opportunities."
