With Gordon Brown finding it difficult to unite his party, the Guardian has commented that broadband should be his unifying policy.
Noting that the broadband industry will be a future safe-haven for jobs and economic growth, the newspaper urges Mr Brown to wholeheartedly back a high-speed broadband revolution.
Mr Brown needs to take the reins on the issue of how to deliver high-speed services not only to people's homes but also to industry and health institutions to transform the way that information is shared and services are provided, the Guardian suggests.
"After 25 years of debate, fibre-optic cable, which has huge capacity, still has not been delivered to the home," the paper notes.
To tackle the issue, public institutions and private companies need to come together to make sure ultra-fast services - which would benefit both the public and the private sector - are provided, it states.
There has been considerable debate in recent months regarding the way in which next-generation broadband services will be funded.
