Gordon Brown's comments relating to the construction of a super-fast fibre-optic broadband network in the UK are encouraging, according to the chief executive of the Broadband Stakeholder Group (BSG).

The prime minister recently suggested that public money could be ploughed into Britain's broadband infrastructure in an effort to battle the ongoing economic downturn.

Anthony Walker has given the Mr Brown's proposal BSG's seal of approval, telling the BBC: "It would be easy to see broadband as an expensive luxury in difficult times but it is encouraging that Gordon Brown has recognised that investment in the broadband infrastructure could provide long-term benefits to productivity."

Leader of the opposition David Cameron has echoed Mr Brown's sentiments on the issue, promising that the Conservative party would bring fibre-optic connectivity to every home in the country if elected.
