Following culture secretary Jeremy Hunt's first major speech
on the provision of internet in the UK, SEO experts QueryClick.com have
welcomed plans for a superfast broadband network to be rolled out
across the country.
Branding the UK's current internet availability as a “scandal” and “pitifully
unambitious”, the Government aim to improve the availability and speed of the
network in a bid to create one of the best broadband networks in the Europe, let
alone the world.
Central to the Government's ambitious reform of UK internet provision is the
opportunity to create at least 60,000 new jobs and around £18bn to the country's
GDP; a welcome addition in light of growing unemployment and crippling public
deficit that fuelled the global recession.
Search engine optimisation company Queryclick.com believes that the a more
thorough broadband network would be greatly beneficial to online business. A
“Online business naturally relies on a fast and reliable internet connection.
Currently some three million households do not have access to a basic 2Mbps
“In our view, an added three million people potentially shopping online would
greatly benefit the economy. There's also going to be people amongst that number
who have aspirations of starting their own business and in this day and age the
internet is an integral part to the success of any start-up company.”
Although the Government were unable to give full details of how the superfast
network would be achieved it is thought that gas, water and other utility companies
would – by law – have to open their ducts to allow for improved fibre optic cabling.
Queryclick.com said the Government are making a smart move in recognising the
importance of the internet alongside other utilities.
"Internet providers and their customers have long been held at the mercy of utility
providers. Despite the extraordinary costs associated with digging up roads and
exposing ducts, there comes a time when we all have to bite the bullet if the UK is
to get a better broadband service.
“Once this new superfast network is in place, Britain can continue to assert itself
as a leader in everything from education to medicine, music to journalism with the
internet a more accessible platform from which to share ideas, sell goods and
