Gordon Brown makes super-fast broadband pledge

Gordon Brown has made the provision of high speed broadband an election issue after pledging to bring it to every household in Britain.

In a speech on Monday, Brown stated that he felt that Britain is “uniquely equipped to lead the digital age” citing the presence of the most lucrative e-commerce market in Europe and that a quarter of UK jobs are in the ICT sector.

He also said that the provision of “superfast broadband” was like the electricity of the digital age – a vital component for modern life and pledged to make the creation of a digital infrastructure a priority, supported by the 50p broadband tax.
