Super-fast broadband is playing a vital role in supporting business growth in the UK, it has been claimed.

Ed Vaizey, the Communications Minister, noted that more and more companies are signing up for fibre services to join the 'super-fast broadband revolution'.

He claimed that super-fast broadband is "a key part" of the present and future success of the UK as a whole.

"This exciting technology is essential to modern business life whether you are a high-tech start-up or an established family firm in an industry, such as tourism or manufacturing," Mr Vaizey stated.

"It will become even more essential in the increasingly 'connected world' of the future."

He said it is "heartening" to see the way UK companies are embracing the new technology, finding ways to make it work effectively for them and creating jobs.

The government is aiming to ensure 99 per cent of UK homes and businesses have access to super-fast broadband by 2018.
