Budget tax to fund broadband vision criticised

The government has been criticised for the introduction of a controversial 50p-per-month landline levy to fund investment in the national broadband network, as announced in the March budget.

Although industry providers agree with the development of Britain as a leading digital nation, critics argue that businesses cannot wait until the Government’s 2017 target for reliable national super fast broadband.

Fredi Nonyelu, founder and Chief Executive of Briteyellow claims, “The immediate challenge is to ensure that businesses in poorly served areas benefit from consistent high speed services, as part of the economic recovery.”

“There is a huge amount of frustration amongst businesses that experience slow connectivity, even though competitors in neighbouring areas are benefitting from a super fast service.”

“In an increasingly competitive market place businesses are looking at efficiencies and customer focus. Consistent super fast broadband connectivity is business critical in a world where consumers, suppliers, as well as business partners demand instant access to key data and systems.”

Fredi Nonyelu continues “As one of the UK’s leading specialist wireless broadband providers Briteyellow is now rolling out the fastest internet connections available to under-served communities. We are the preferred wireless broadband provider to several shopping centres, business parks, digital cities, as well as residential areas.”

“Our clients realise that they do have a choice and are benefitting right now from super fast broadband from just £19.95 a month with host of additional benefits including free Wi-Fi roaming, free spam and virus filtering, free support and free calls.”

There is an economic argument for businesses and individuals to gain access to a reliable super fast broadband service now provided by a new breed of specialist next-generation broadband access providers.
