The government has unveiled a plan for achieving the goals set out in its Digital Britain report.

Published on August 13th, the Implementation Plan revealed that David Hendon from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and Jon Zeff from the Department for Culture Media and Sport will be jointly responsible for overseeing the day-to-day work.

Explaining that there were 70 'actions' outlined in the final Digital Britain report, released in June this year, the BIS said that the plan will be broken down into 18 projects.

However, it indicated that there are no set dates for the completion of the projects.

In the report, the BIS explained: "This paper ... does not set out timing around every item of the programme.

"Each workstream may proceed at a slightly different pace depending on the nature of the work, the need for consultation or legislation and the links to other workstreams."

The BIS also revealed that it will report on the progress of Digital Britain in the autumn.
