The development of next-generation broadband in the UK will lead to the uptake of other technology, it has been suggested.

Speaking at the Joint Westminster eForum & Westminster Media Forum keynote seminar, the British Computer Society's (BCS) representative David Evans has pointed to a number of advances which could be made with the help of high-speed broadband internet.

Mr Evans pointed to utilities computing and cloud computing as two business-friendly technologies which would be aided by a super-fast UK broadband network.

He commented: "When we do start to move on this we will take some other technologies off the leash.

"Agent-based computing could transform the web from a series of interlinked documents into a global database programme."

Ofcom's September 2008 consultation on super-fast broadband concluded that substantial investment would have to be made in "physical infrastructure or in new technologies" in order for customers to enjoy better services.
