The Prime Minister has reiterated his commitment to improving the UK's broadband infrastructure.

Addressing MPs in the House of Commons, David Cameron said public investment in broadband is going to be "absolutely vital" if the UK is to experience a private sector-led recovery.

He pointed to the government's £530 million investment in rural broadband services as evidence of the coalition's determination to narrow the digital divide.

Mr Cameron said broadband will drive the development of small businesses nationwide, noting that this will be "so important to keep the growth of employment in our country".

The Prime Minister was responding to a question posed by Waveney MP Peter Aldous about the government's attitude to high-speed broadband initiatives.

He is one of seven MPs currently campaigning for improved broadband services in Suffolk, and recently hosted a conference on the subject in Beccles.
