first_imgSunday 5 December 2010 10:58 pm THE government will this morning announce an £830m strategy it hopes will make the UK the leading broadband network in Europe by 2015.A new paper will set out plans to stimulate private investment and encourage competition in the industry.This will involve encouraging firms to share their infrastructure in order to lower the costs of rolling out fast internet access.The proposals include connecting every community to the broadband network by the end of this parliament – regardless of how remote they are.Culture, media and sport minister Jeremy Hunt said: “A superfast network will be the foundation for a new economic dynamism, creating hundreds of thousands of jobs and adding billions to our GDP.Matthew Fell, CBI director for competitive markets, said: “We welcome the Government’s strategy for achieving the best superfast broadband network in Europe by 2015. Now more than ever, it is crucial that the UK can compete for business and drive economic growth on the basis of its digital infrastructure, particularly in industries where we have a natural strength such as the creative sectors.“Government must now work with private sector operators to ensure that they have the framework they require to invest with certainty and confidence in the UK market.” Share KCS-content Read This NextFresh Fruit Sushi: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCreamy Pumpkin Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily Proof’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofA Once in 17 Years Cicada Event in Princeton, New JerseyFamily Proof by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.
