Gaps in Wales's high-speed broadband coverage may not be filled by the government's Digital Britain plans.

That is the opinion of TFL Group, which has warned that the solutions outlined in the report from Lord Carter last month will not be enough to resolve issues with broadband in rural areas.

According to the telecommunications and wireless broadband specialist, businesses in Wales will suffer as a result of problems with these "notspots", ISPreview reports.

TFL Director Jonathan England said: "We do not see any innovation in the report at all. TFL regards the best solution for Wales as being a combination of technologies deployed to deliver the best possible service for the customer at the best possible price."

He explained to the site that a "series of stalemate situations" appear to have arisen in Wales as a result of the Welsh Assembly's agreement with BT to improve broadband access in certain areas, and confusion within the Digital Britain report.

Mr England suggested that some areas which BT said are now receiving broadband in line with its agreement with the Welsh government are still taking delivery of a less than satisfactory service.

He added: "While we accept that the Assembly is doing everything it can to deliver much needed broadband services, these efforts have still to materialise into tangible high speed internet services from BT."
