Business broadband customers are not being given enough attention by those planning for Britain's digital future, it has been warned.

According to fibre-optic broadband network builder Geo, the Digital Britain report - published in June - focuses too much on the delivery of next-generation broadband for consumers.

Speaking to, the company's Chief Executive Chris Smedley said that the provision of faster broadband services to homes is just one part of what is required to create a digital backbone for the UK's economy.

He added: "There’s a misconception amongst UK businesses that investing in more than 1Gb of bandwidth is a costly ‘too much, too soon’ deal leading to fundamentally flawed purchasing decisions.

"The pressure to control, or reduce, spending means UK businesses are trying to operate effectively on limited network bandwidth."

Last month, similar claims were made by network provider NetServices, which told Computer Weekly that little was done to address the issues of business broadband connection quality and reliability in the Digital Britain report.
