Inadequate broadband is not merely a problem for businesses and households based in the countryside, it has been claimed.

According to Alan Moseley, Chair of the Shropshire Council Scrutiny Committee, many towns are blighted by unacceptable broadband coverage.

Speaking to the BBC, he highlighted the problems caused for businesses by poor quality broadband.

Councillor Moseley said broadband is "essential" to run a business successfully in today's world.

"We were not just concerned with access but with speeds too, as this is vital, particularly for many businesses," he said.

The comments came after BT announced plans to include 41 UK market towns in its latest round of fibre broadband deployments.

BT is in the process of upgrading telephone exchanges across Britain to support next-generation broadband technology.
