Broadband proposals 'will help create new jobs'

Government plans to roll out high-speed internet access across the UK will help to create thousands of new jobs, it has been noted.

Speaking after the publication of the Britain's Superfast Broadband Future document, secretary of state for Olympics, culture, media and sport Jeremy Hunt said the proposals will lead to new work opportunities and add millions of pounds to the economy.

"We want the UK to have the best broadband system in Europe by 2015. Our strategy, backed by an £830 million government investment, will help deliver that by stimulating private investment and competition," he stated.

Caroline Spelman, secretary of state for environment, food and rural affairs, noted education and businesses depend on reliable internet access and the plans will help to improve life and promote inclusion in rural areas across the UK.

Commenting on the proposals, Confederation of British Industries director Matthew Fell welcomed the plans, stating it is more important than ever for the government to ensure the country's digital infrastructure can allow companies to compete for business.
