The impact of bandwidth-hungry internet services on broadband suppliers is to be addressed at a conference in London this week.

On June 16th, the Digital TV Group will speak at the third annual Broadband Connect Summit, which is to take place at the Courthouse Hotel.

Online services offered by digital TV broadcasters have exploded in popularity, thanks in part to the increased speeds offered by internet service providers.

The focus of this year's event is the anticipated release of the Digital Britain report and the effect it could have on next-generation broadband access.

"Delegates will have a great opportunity to hear many different perspectives on the future of next generation networks as the government announces its proposals for Digital Britain," said Dr William Cooper, Chair of the event.

The conference will also focus on the issue of broadband access and who will fund the investment that is required to meet growing business and home demand for faster internet connections.

Recently, broadband supplier BT suggested that video content providers such as BBC and YouTube should contribute towards infrastructure costs as their services increase user bandwidth demands.
