The Conservative Party says it will provide the most comprehensive and cheapest super-fast broadband coverage of any major European country if it wins the next General Election.

As reported by ISPreview.co.uk, the Tories' 2015 manifesto also includes a commitment to provide rural Britain with "near universal super-fast broadband by the end of the next parliament".

Funding from the BBC licence fee would be used to further invest in the UK's digital infrastructure and ensure fibre broadband is made more widely available.

The Prime Minister David Cameron said the Conservative Party would look to deliver the next generation of UK infrastructure.

"This includes more roads and broadband, High Speed 2 and rail improvements across the nation," he stated.

"You asked that while we got Britain back living within her means, we should invest in the things that really matter... science, super-fast broadband, our railways and roads," Mr Cameron added.

He noted that 40,000 homes and business are being connected to super-fast broadband every week, as fibre services become more widely available.
