The government's pledge to get unconnected Brits online as well as promoting a high-speed broadband network could be undermined by the current financial situation.
That is the worry of Tech Watch's David Allen, who was looking forward to the review of the UK communications sector by the UK's first minister of communications, technology and broadcasting, Lord Carter.
Mr Allen wonders how the government will meet its broadband targets as the credit crunch looms.
He said: "Not only is there the £300 million which has been provided to get everyone online, there is the introduction of super fast broadband which was announced before the banking troubles."
Adding: "With credit being hard to obtain are these projects going to be completed or delayed?"
Jim Knight, UK minister for schools, recently outlined a £300 million government investment which will aim to provide every school child with broadband access at home.
