Fast broadband for all by 2020 pledged by David Cameron


_86562529_broadband The PM is to introduce a “universal service obligation” for broadband, giving the public a legal right to request an “affordable” connection.

It would put broadband on a similar footing to other basic services such as water and electricity.

Labour said it meant “another five years on the broadband back-burner” for those struggling with their service.
