New government plans to improve the quality of broadband coverage across the UK have been welcomed by TalkTalk.

The broadband provider's Executive Director Andrew Heaney told V3.co.uk that the company supports Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt's plans to open up network infrastructures in a bid to boost services.

In addition, the expert suggested that while the proposals amount to a "sound approach", some changes should be put forward in terms of legislation.

He explained: "There are other areas that need addressing, such as the arcane rates system that discourages [building new networks], and ensuring that public networks offer cost-effective open access."

Earlier this week, the UK's Digital Champion Martha Lane Fox praised TalkTalk for its work as a "core" partner of the Race Online 2012 initiative to get ten million people online.

The company has aimed to get around 100,000 new users online by 2012 as part of the scheme.
