Brown's fist launches new gravy train broadband review

A new minister for business regulation was appointed last month. So inevitably, with a clearing of the throat and an impatient shuffling of the feet, it was only a matter of time before a new review into UK broadband adoption would be announced. And here we are.

The review will be led by Francesco Caio, former Cable & Wireless CEO.
