The UK's Digital Champion is delivering her manifesto for improving broadband coverage to Downing Street today (July 12th).

Martha Lane Fox's Manifesto for a Networked Nation includes ideas and proposals on how the government can help to get the ten million people who have never used the internet online by 2015.

In a column published by the Daily Mirror, she outlined the range of benefits that broadband access can offer people, from lower utility costs to a better education.

Ms Lane Fox said she is keen to get everyone looking for work online, as well as those who are close to retirement.

"It is a challenge for people and organisations in every corner of our country to inspire, encourage and support as many new people as possible to get online by the end of the Olympic year," she added.

The UK's Digital Champion holds the issue of internet access close to her heart, as she rose to prominence after co-founding travel website Lastminute.com in 1998.
