Digital Britain: High Speed Access For All

written by

10 Downing Street, England — The launch of the Digital Britain report today will give the country the tools necessary to succeed in the future economy, the Prime Minister has said.

This morning the Prime Minister toured the Arqiva power transmitter site in south-east London to mark the release of the report.

He was joined by Business Secretary Lord Mandelson, Culture, Media and Sport Secretary Ben Bradshaw and Communications, Technology and Broadcasting Minister Lord Stephen Carter.

Gordon Brown said the report will take Britain closer to its goal of being the digital capital of the world.

“Every business will have access to fast broadband and the report today makes it possible for this to happen in the quickest time.”

“Britain will be the broadband capital, Britain will make the investment that is necessary and every citizen in Britain will benefit from the fast connections.”

Mr Brown said ongoing investment in high-tech, low-carbon industries would ensure the UK’s place as a leader of the future by reigniting the “British genius for invention, discovery and trade”.
