MPs look into broadband speeds

July 2, 2009

MPs from the Commons Business and Enterprise Committee are going to open up an inquiry into the UK’s broadband speeds.

This is the MPs’ idea of following up the recently published Digital Britain report produced by the communications minister.

There is a lot in the report to cover and there are some issues being raised by consumer groups, industry experts and from the industry itself.

These include the broadband tax on phone lines, the minimum 2 Mbps broadband service for all homes and if the report can survive a change of government.

The committee has asked for evidence to be supplied in writing from interested parties.

This will have to be with the committee by the 25th September to be considered by the MPs.

They will be publishing a report shortly after that date.
