The BBC has thrown its weight behind the proposals made in Lord Carter's Digital Britain report, released yesterday (Thursday, January 29th).
One of the stand-out features of the communications minister's publication was the vision of ensuring every household and business has access to broadband services up to speeds of at least 2Mb.
The BBC Trust has released a statement welcoming the move, highlighting high-speed internet as a good way of providing information and entertainment to the masses.
"Digital and broadband technologies hold enormous potential to bring great benefits to audiences and to the economy," the Trust explained.
"The BBC stands ready to play its part in ensuring these benefits are delivered as widely as possible through the UK."
Lord Carter called upon the BBC to help with the marketing of broadband, promoting content in a bid to increase take-up.
