The majority of UK broadband customers believe the government should be investing more in the construction of super-fast networks, a study has suggested.

To date, the Con-Lib coalition has committed around £1.2 billion in total to the deployment of super-fast broadband across Britain - including both urban and rural projects.

The government is aiming to ensure that super-fast broadband is available to 95 per cent of the population by 2017.

However, two-thirds of respondents in an survey claimed more funding should be set aside for the delivery of network infrastructure.

Of those surveyed, 19.1 per cent thought an extra £10 billion or more of public money should be invested in broadband networks.

Some 13.5 per cent called for another £5-10 billion to be spent on networks, 21.8 per cent thought an additional £2-5 billion was needed and 12.8 per cent called for up to £1 billon.

Just 32.6 per cent of respondents believed the government has set aside enough money for the rollout of super-fast broadband nationwide.
