Super-fast broadband has the potential to bring many benefits to rural parts of the UK, it has been suggested.

According to a spokesperson for the Communications Consumer Panel, both social and economic advantages can be created through improved broadband coverage, such as the ability for people to work from home.

The expert added that older people could also receive assistance and support through web-based channels, while teachers may have the chance to easily share educational materials.

Discussing the benefits, the spokesperson said: "The internet has already brought about a revolution in informing citizens and making available information and making public and other services more accessible to many more people."

The source added that these advantages need to be recognised by the government, which must commit to meeting demand.

An independent policy body, the Communications Consumer Panel advises bodies including Ofcom, the government and the European Union on broadband issues.
