Commenting on the Government update on the rollout of superfast broadband, Dr Adam Marshall, Executive Director of Policy and External Affairs at the British Chambers of Commerce, said
"No one should be patting themselves on the back because an unambitious target is likely to be met in two years' time. Across the UK, far too many businesses and consumers still have insufficient or unreliable broadband coverage, which stops entrepreneurs and exporters in their tracks. While many are in rural areas, 'not-spots' plague companies even near our major cities.
"If we want to be the most prosperous country in the world, we need to have the best digital infrastructure in the world, and we're a long way from that. Ministers and regulators need to set their sights - and their investment commitments - higher."
