Be Broadband intends to continue its policy of investing in high-speed broadband networks, despite the focus placed on universal coverage by the Digital Britain report.

Government plans to extend 2Mb broadband across the whole of the UK have come under criticism by some who feel that the infrastructure required for this will soon be 'inadequate' for new internet services.

The internet service provider suggested that the newly-announced broadband tax could perhaps have been better spent towards "providing the next-generation of broadband".

Felix Geyr, Managing Director of Be Broadband, said: "As a specialist broadband provider whose members have a clear need for higher broadband speeds, we will continue to invest in our networks to provide tomorrow's broadband."

He added that the broadband supplier is "keen" to hear the government's plans for investment in fibre-optic services capable of offering much quicker connection speeds.

Meanwhile, BT Chief Executive Ian Livingston has heaped praise on Digital Britain, heralding it as an "ambitious report" displaying a "strong vision" for the future.
