Plans to develop South Yorkshire's broadband network will have many benefits for local businesses.

That is the opinion of the Doncaster Chamber of Commerce, which has asserted that super-fast broadband will create numerous opportunities for local firms.

Daniel Fell, Head of Policy at the Chamber, told the Star that the multi-million pound Digital Region scheme is a "crucial asset to Doncaster".

Mr Fell explained that the programme, which will be run by top telecoms executives, will be particularly useful for the region's creative and digital sector.

He told the local newspaper: "The quality of our ICT infrastructure and communications market is critical to the future of our entire economy. It is especially important to small and medium-sized enterprises who make up 99 per cent of all UK businesses."

Earlier this month it was revealed that Maureen Donnelly, BT's former Head of UK Market Planning, will be Chief Executive for Digital Region Ltd.
