Consumers living in areas covered by KC's broadband infrastructure should have access to 2Mb broadband by the spring, it has been claimed.

In an exclusive interview with, KC's Director of Consumer Affairs Nick Thompson noted that the broadband provider is focused on delivering such services across east Yorkshire by March 2011.

"Moving on from that achievement, we will increase our service ambitions, a key part of which is to ensure that we deliver a consistent standard of service to all our customers across both urban and rural locations," he commented.

Mr Thompson claimed that the government has "lacked ambition" in terms of meeting its own universal service commitment.

Following the general election, the deadline for rolling out nationwide 2Mb broadband was pushed back from 2012 to 2015, meaning it could be several years before some communities are equipped with improved internet connections.

Based upon KC's experience of delivering high-speed broadband to the countryside, Mr Thompson suggested the original target could have been met "with the right level of application and desire".
