MPs debate the Digital Britain report

July 29, 2009

It has been a few weeks since the much awaited Digital Britain report was released, the main point being that all homes in the UK can expect a broadband service with a minimum connection speed of 2 Mbps.

Now it is the turn of the MPs sitting on the Enterprise Committee and the Commons Business department to sit down and decide if 2 Mbps is fast enough, when the proposed broadband tax of 50p per month is fair and if the report has missed anything out.

The Digital Britain report was compiled by the communications minister, Lord Carter, and took eight months to complete.

The target date for the plan to be put into action is 2012, but with a general election due in 2010, will the Digital Report 2009 be replaced by the Digital Report 2010.
