Wireless and satellite broadband technology can help provide internet access to households and businesses in rural areas, it has been claimed.

The Broadband Stakeholder Group has claimed that the future of broadband coverage in the UK "is not just about fibre".

Antony Walker, Chief Executive of the organisation, said a range of different technologies need to be deployed if UK coverage is to be maximised.

"There simply isn't a one-size-fits-all technology solution to deliver a truly ubiquitous next-generation broadband Britain, we'll need to use all of the technologies available," he stated.

He was commenting after research consultancy Analysys Masons claimed that the release of more spectrum would further reduce the cost and increase the capability of wireless and satellite solutions.

The firm also said that satellite will provide "an effective solution" for delivering next-generation broadband in the hardest-to-reach locations.
