UK Super-fast Broadband for all plan

Gordon Brown has said Labour plans to give every home in the UK access to super-fast broadband. In a speech, the prime minister called high-speed web access "the electricity of the digital age" which "must be for all - not just for some".

The Conservatives say they have made a similar pledge and have attacked a £6-a-year landline levy planned by Labour.

The PM also promised to create a single website bringing together all government and public sector services. The "mygov" portal will allow people to manage pensions and benefits, pay council tax, apply for school places and jobs, and book doctor's appointments - all online. He said it would end the "one size fits all" style of public services and would help the British government become "the most efficient, open and responsive" in the world.

The PM also said Labour planned £30m of funding for a new Institute of Web Science, to be based in Britain and jointly headed by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the world wide web.

In his speech, Mr Brown set out his plans to make Britain "the world leader in the digital economy" by 2020 - although there was no date set to provide the faster broadband for all homes.

2020 is hardly rushing things, but is probably the best offer available in view of the economic climate.  :gum:
