Super-fast broadband offers "a tremendous opportunity" for young businesses and small and medium-sized enterprises, it has been claimed.
A spokesman from the Internet Services Providers' Association (ISPA) said it is important that businesses realise the full range of benefits of super-fast connectivity.
"The ISPA welcomes the continued investment by all members in their networks and the benefits these will bring to consumers and businesses accessing services in the UK," they stated.
However, the trade association said continued investment in networks by government and members should take priority over a speeds target by 2015.
"There should instead be a target-based approach, with [greater] emphasis on ensuring consumers and businesses are able to access the services they require," the spokesperson added.
BT recently announced plans to double the speeds provided by its BT Infinity 2 fibre broadband deal to up to 76Mb.
