Stephen Carter will use his speech on Digital Britain Report to stress that nationwide high-speed internet must be implemented in the UK.

That is the expectation of Broadband.co.uk Managing Director Edd Dawson, who foresees Lord Carter's focus to be on increasing broadband speeds in homes across the country.

Mr Dawson drew attention to the areas of the UK which are not currently broadband-connected or that are lagging behind regions covered by faster services.

He commented: "We very much expect his main area of focus to be universal broadband access across the country, and the minimum speed that is often mentioned is two Mb.

"There are many hundreds of thousands of properties that fall below this threshold currently, so the key will be how they propose to bridge the gap."

However, recent research from Broadband.co.uk does suggest a wind of change may about to be felt in the UK's broadband sector, with speeds up for the first time since July 2008 to average of 3.667Mb.
