The key to utilising next-generation broadband as a British business weapon is dialogue between the government and firms in the UK, according to the Confederation of British Industry (CBI).

CBI deputy director-general John Cridland was talking in the wake of Lord Carter's Digital Britain report being published.

In it, 22 recommendations are set out, many of which relate to the development of business broadband in the UK.

If the new technology is to have the desired effect on business, Mr Cridland said, the government must sit down with companies and discuss the logistics of the project.

He concluded: "Business wants to see a clear vision of how to move to a fully functioning knowledge economy.

"Extended access to broadband for businesses and households has to be the right way forward, but there must be a dialogue between business and government about how this can be funded."
