Broadband provider Kingston Communications (KC) has warned that whichever political party comes to power following the general election must make sustainable broadband for all a priority.

Speaking to, KC's Director of Consumer and Publishing Services Nick Thompson said that 10Mb broadband for all is a realistic target which will suit consumers' requirements.

Mr Thompson stated that rather than solely focusing on download speeds it is important for broadband providers to aim to provide a reliable service, which works consistently and also has good upload speeds.

"To achieve sustainable broadband for all, we need to concentrate less on raw speed figures and focus more on how the industry can deliver consistent, stable download and upload speeds that customers want to use today and will want to use in the foreseeable future," he added.

Earlier this month, Kcom teamed up with Actelis Networks to achieve faster broadband speeds for its business clients.

The broadband provider is employing advanced services designed to deliver speeds up to 8.5Mb over a single copper pair, using Actelis's EFMplus technology.
