Work is ongoing to make Bristol the site of a "digital revolution" based around broadband, the city's Council Leader has claimed.

In a column for the Bristol Evening Post, Barbara Janke has stated that the local authority is looking to boost both the environmental and technological credentials of the area.

She explained that efforts to improve broadband coverage would provide major benefits to both homes and businesses.

"Making sure everyone is connected to broadband – digital inclusion – is a vital ingredient in our future success," she wrote.

"We want people to be able to acquire the skills needed to work in and support a thriving digital and creative sector that will pull in private investment and help strengthen Bristol's standing nationally and internationally."

Broadband provider Orange recently published a map which outlines how universal web access will affect the UK, particularly in terms of remote working.

It includes information on which regions' infrastructures are best prepared for such trends.
