The introduction of faster broadband will boost the UK’s IT infrastructure, research suggests.

Research by the British Computer Society (BCS), found that two-thirds of IT managers think the launch of a high-speed broadband network nationwide will be a big boost to businesses.

In addition, it revealed that 65 per cent of those polled think the IT sector should place more focus on improving skills.

Commenting on the findings, David Clarke, Chief Executive Officer of BCS, said: "Our ability to process, share and manage information will determine the success of our society.

"To be successful, we need a high performing IT education system and a population with the IT skills to be productive, empowered citizens."

Earlier this week, the government confirmed plans to introduce a new tax of 50 pence a month on fixed phone lines in the UK, which will then be used to create a next generation network.
