According to a study conducted by ISPreview nine out of ten think the Coalition Government has not done enough to improve the UK’s broadband services.
More than 400 people were polled between March and April 2011 and over half voted that this Government is just bad as the last in terms of broadband improvements.
In addition, a quarter felt that the Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition had actually done worse than Labour.
The focus on UK broadband has come as plans to get the country connected to super-fast fibre optic broadband by 2015 are currently in motion.
Furthermore, nearly 70 per cent said they would like to see more of tax payers’ money ploughed into the earlier-mentioned improvements.
Raised taxes could be the key to unlocking a better service for the country as private sector investment alone can only reach three quarters of the country.
ISPreview’s founder, Mark Jackson, said:
“The results clearly show that, despite having only just started to emerge from a deep recession, most people do recognise the increasingly vital importance of internet access and would even be willing to sacrifice more of their hard earned cash in order to see it improved.”
“A large swathe of the population still hasn’t been convinced by the government’s latest efforts, which is crucial because private sector investment alone can only reach approximately 70% of the country with superfast broadband services. In the future more money may be needed to reach the remotest locations.”
