An event which will consider how the government's broadband plans will be brought to fruition is to be held next month.

It has been revealed that ministers are holding an open day in London on July 15th where internet service providers and other companies will be given the chance to offer their thoughts on how universal broadband can be introduced across the UK.

As well as looking at bringing 2Mb services to all of the UK by 2012, it will also consider policies for ensuring remote areas can gain access to super-fast broadband services.

Broadband Delivery UK, the body established to take responsibility for the government's internet plans, will then be given the chance to assess any of the ideas put forward at the event.

Details of the open day have come after Chancellor George Osborne confirmed in the government's emergency Budget that a tax on landlines will no longer be used to fund the rollout of broadband.
