The essential guide to IT transformation

Nine out of ten of communications professionals believe BT is still not doing enough to deliver broadband in the UK.

The survey by of 422 members of the Communications Management Association (CMA) found that BT should be forced to speed up the roll-out of ADSL.

Eight out of ten people said the Government should intervene to make universal access to broadband services a reality. A similar number of people also believe that there should be a greater use of fibre to deliver "Broadband Britain".

News that IT professionals aren't happy with BT's progress coincides with the announcement that there are now more than a million broadband connections in the UK. Earlier today the Government rejected calls to invest in fibre. ®
