East Anglia's broadband services are not sufficient for commercial users and are in much need of improvement.

That is according to a pair of entrepreneurs who are determined to enrich the broadband infrastructure of the area for businesses.

George Freeman and Nigel Brown believe that the region will develop considerably if investment is secured for the development of broadband.

Mr Freeman and Mr Brown, founder of 4D Biomedical and chairman of the Greater Cambridge Partnership respectively, are now seeking ways to raise the necessary private and public funds.

The businessmen are also hoping to secure enough money to improve East Anglia's road and rail links between Norwich and Cambridge.

"We will never unlock the potential of this region unless we can get around," Mr Freeman told the BBC.

"Investing in a modern rail, road and broadband infrastructure will allow us to accelerate innovation, spread prosperity and reduce congestion," he added.
