More than four in five people would like the UK government to divert more funding to boost the rollout of superfast broadband across the country, a new poll has found.

A survey of 1,045 people carried out by found that almost 81 per cent of the public would prefer to see a greater amount of government funding used for this purpose, with three in five believing that rural areas need the most urgent attention.

The figures are both higher than a similar poll carried out two years ago, when just 69 per cent of people called for more funding to be allocated to superfast broadband projects.

The public is also keen to see the standard broadband speeds available across the country rise considerably, with a quarter in favour of a 100Mb minimum broadband speed and three in ten supporting 25Mb as a minimum.

In contrast, just 2.8 per cent of people believe that a minimum broadband speed of 2Mb would be sufficient for the nation's broadband customers.
