Broadband provider TalkTalk has backed new Conservative plans which would allow more internet companies to invest in super-fast networks.

Under the plans, broadband providers would be able to pay for faster networks without duplicating those already introduced by BT, which currently has a monopoly on cables used for such purposes.

According to Andrew Heaney, Executive Director of Strategy and Regulation at TalkTalk, the proposal is "the right thing to do".

He told TalkTalk's official blog: "Giving other operators the chance to invest in new technology is the only way to supercharge our way to superfast broadband.

"By allowing operators like TalkTalk to invest, we can innovate like never before, giving people much faster broadband services and a richer internet experience."

The Conservatives also recently announced plans to create a new regulatory framework to ensure broadband services offering speeds of up to 100Mb are available to homes across the UK by 2017.
